We have come to the end of season three of the Africa Science Focus podcast and we decided to compile some insights on science in Sub-Saharan Africa from some of the science conferences we attended in 2022. 

At the 2022 World science forum, Cape Town, South Africa, Tumelo Nhlapo of the University of South Africa’s Science Engagement Centre tells us how the centre engages kids in problem solving and STEM.  

At the 2022 conference on public health in Africa, Kigali, Rwanda, Noella Bigiriman, deputy director general, Rwanda Biomedical Centre, talks us to about incorporating covid-19 lessons into public health systems. 

And at the Africa Economic Conference, we learnt about climate smart development, transitioning to clean fuels and developing policies around renewable energy in Africa
