The First Bantu Speakers South of the Rainforest: A Cross-Disciplinary Approach to Human Migration, Language Spread, Climate Change and Early Farming in Late Holocene Central Africa
Company Name UNIVERSITEIT GENT
Funded By 38
Country Belgium , Western Europe
Project Value 2 Million
Project Detail

The Bantu Expansion is not only the main linguistic, cultural and demographic process in Late Holocene Africa. It is also one of the most controversial issues in African History that still has political repercussions today. It has sparked debate across the disciplines and far beyond Africanist circles in an attempt to understand how the young Bantu language family (ca. 5000 years) could spread over large parts of Central, Eastern and Southern Africa. This massive dispersal is commonly seen as the result of a single migratory macro-event driven by agriculture, but many questions about the movement and subsistence of ancestral Bantu speakers are still open. They can only be answered through real interdisciplinary collaboration. This project will unite researchers with outstanding expertise in African archaeology, archaeobotany and historical linguistics to form a unique cross-disciplinary team that will shed new light on the first Bantu-speaking village communities south of the rainforest. Fieldwork is planned in parts of the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Republic of Congo and Angola that are terra incognita for archaeologists to determine the timing, location and archaeological signature of the earliest villagers and to establish how they interacted with autochthonous hunter-gatherers. Special attention will be paid to archaeobotanical and palaeoenvironmental data to get an idea of their subsistence, diet and habitat. Historical linguistics will be pushed beyond the boundaries of vocabulary-based phylogenetics and open new pathways in lexical reconstruction, especially regarding subsistence and land use of early Bantu speakers. Through interuniversity collaboration archaeozoological, palaeoenvironmental and genetic data and phylogenetic modelling will be brought into the cross-disciplinary approach to acquire a new holistic view on the interconnections between human migration, language spread, climate change and early farming in Late Holocene Central Africa.

Project Detail

Promoter – Financial Intermediary Not disclosed. Location Malawi, Mozambique Description The project will finance the roll-out of off-grid solar energy systems in Mozambique and potentially other countries in Southern Sub-Saharan Africa. Objectives The operation aims deploying last mile distribution for underserved rural off-grid households and micro-entrepreneurs communities in Mozambique and to a lesser extent in Malawi The operation consists in the distribution, installation, and financing of Solar Home Systems (SHS) and devices in Southern Africa by the promoter. The project is expected to have significant positive social impact given that final beneficiaries are typically off-grid households and small commercial activities, which will be enabled to improve their quality of life and partially use the energy services for productive use and income generating activities. Sector(s) Energy - Electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply Proposed EIB finance (Approximate amount) not disclosed Total cost (Approximate amount) not disclosed Environmental aspects The relatively small size of the household solar home systems, the multiple locations and the nature of the installation of solar powered systems will limit the potential negative environmental impacts of the operation. The due diligence will review the promoters capacity, approach and procedures for ensuring that the operation is implemented in line with the Banks environmental standards, notably for what concerns potential residual risks, such as e-waste and battery disposal/recycling, as well as client protection principles. The project is expected to be environmentally and socially sound. It will facilitate access to renewable energy for an unserved or underserved population and mitigate CO2 emissions from fossil energy sources currently used for lighting and electricity generation. Procurement The Bank will require the promoter to ensure that implementation of the project will be done in accordance with the Banks Guide to Procurement. Status Approved - 28/08/2019

DISEASE HIV and Co-Infection TYPE Treatment LEAD GRANTEE Wits Reproductive Health & HIV Institute GRANT FOCUS Improve antiretroviral treatment for HIV-positive people in low- and middle-income countries STATUS Current TIME FRAME 2016-2020 GRANT VALUE US$ 12,929,422 DISBURSEMENTS As of 13.12.2018 US$ 7,066,665 A rigorous clinical trial that could yield better first-line HIV treatment. Challenges Current first-line regimens recommended in low- and middle-income countries have successfully treated over 15 million people. However, the regimens are highly susceptible to drug resistance, even in the event of a slight decrease in adherence. This results in rapid transition to more expensive and more complex second-line regimens. First-line regimens also prove toxic for a significant number of patients, compromising adherence. The need for better regimens in resource-limited settings remains unmet. Experience has shown that transition to new antiretroviral combinations can be very challenging in low- and middle-income countries. Lack of effective planning and implementation often leads to delays in adopting new WHO recommendations. Solutions The ADVANCE project includes a rigorous clinical trial that could yield a new first-line regimen with the potential to transform healthcare for HIV-positive people in resource-constrained settings. A large community-, clinician- and regulatory-engagement programme will run in tandem with the clinical trial to prepare South Africa and the region for this regimen. This trial will evaluate a new first-line regimen that, if successful, will be cheaper, more tolerable for patients, and require a smaller dose than existing first-line regimens. It will also aim to provide a far higher barrier to resistance. “If we get this right, patients will benefit from safer, better tolerated, more forgiving and smaller tablets, while governments will save money. It is not often in medicine we get such a win-win.” FRANÇOIS VENTER, PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR, ADVANCE TRIAL Progress so far The ADVANCE trial started screening in mid-January 2017, with enrolment completed in May 2018. A total of 1,053 participants were enrolled, and the first study results are expected in mid-2019 (48-week outcomes) and mid-2020 (96-week outcomes). With support from this project, community and health-worker engagement and advocacy has increased as South Africa plans to introduce dolutegravir into the national guidelines for antiretroviral therapy (ART) with roll-out in July 2019. Find out more Lead grantee: Wits RHI Consortium member: St. Stephen’s AIDS Trust Consortium member: Treatment Action Campaign Consortium member: Southern Africa HIV Clinicians Society Consortium member: University of Cape Town Grant advocacy partner: HIV i-Base The impact we are seeking The ultimate objective of this grant is to generate evidence that supports the wider adoption of optimal ARV regimens that are cheaper, more tolerable for patients, and have a smaller dosage than existing first-line regimens. The significantly lower price of new therapies could enable the South African government to provide ART to several million more people with HIV by 2019 using the existing drug budget.

DISEASE HIV and Co-Infection TYPE Treatment LEAD GRANTEE Institut Bouisson Bertrand GRANT FOCUS Generate robust evidence on the clinical and economic benefits of a dolutegravir-based regimen in an African setting STATUS Current TIME FRAME 2016-2021 GRANT VALUE US$ 2,450,223 DISBURSEMENTS As of 23.11.2018 US$ 1,416,890 A clinical trial to generate robust evidence on the clinical and economic characteristics of a dolutegravir-based regimen in an African setting Challenges More than 15 million people living with HIV have no access to treatment, around half of them in eastern and southern Africa. New antiretroviral drugs such as dolutegravir (DTG) offer improved treatments, but their suitability for resource-limited settings is unknown because they have been evaluated mainly in US and European markets. Solutions DTG has been shown in trials to be safer, more effective and more affordable than many antiretrovirals. Because it has fewer side effects, patients are more likely to finish the treatment. Studies suggest that switching to DTG-based regimens could enable low-and middle-income countries to expand antiretroviral therapy fast enough to reach the UN 90-90-90 targets for ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic. “The results of this study are highly anticipated at the international level in order to evolve the treatment recommendations for better tolerated and more effective strategies.” PROFESSOR ERIC DELAPORTE, TRIAL PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR Progress so far The NAMSAL/ANRS 12313 trial aims to confirm the efficacy of DTG-based first-line treatment in a low-income country (Cameroon). The trial started in July 2016, and initial results were presented at HIV Glasgow in October 2018. All participants are in the 96-week trial follow-up phase. Next results will be presented at the IAS and ICASA meetings in 2019, and 96-week results are expected in late 2019. Post-trial results will be ready near the end of 2021. The project also includes sub-studies on: the cost-effectiveness of introducing DTG as a first-line HIV drug in low- and middle-income countries; efavirenz concentration levels in pregnant women and in TB co-infected patients; and the HIV virus’s emerging resistance to these treatments. Read more The impact we are seeking The grant aims to contribute to the scale-up of improved first-line antiretroviral treatment. It will strengthen the evidence base for the clinical and economic benefits of a DTG-based first-line regimen in Africa. This regimen could directly impact millions of people living with HIV if it were recommended as a first-line treatment. It could also generate significant financial savings, as it is more affordable compared with current treatment options.

The rate of entry of six-year-olds into primary education has risen from just under 30 percent (2000) to more than 80 percent (2015). However, the quality of education is still inadequate and the number of early school leavers remains high. Only 44 percent of all students finished 7th grade in 2014, thus achieving a primary school diploma. Girls are particularly affected. Frequent absence, especially of teachers and school administrators, is a fundamental problem. In spite of previous successes, there are still too few trained teachers available for the growing number of students. There are only about 62 teachers for 1 teacher. The qualitative shortcomings of basic education continue in VET. Three quarters of VET graduates find no employment in their occupational field, as VET is insufficiently geared to the needs of the labor market. Therefore, young people do not benefit from the economic growth of the country. Poor basic education and insufficiently employment-oriented vocational training lead directly to low-paid, low-productivity jobs and enduring poverty. aim Children and young people, especially girls and young women, receive life-oriented basic education and employment-oriented vocational training in good quality. Approach The program is fully integrated into the Education Strategy and Vocational Reform of the Mozambican Government. It follows a program-based approach, coordinated with all donors, and operates nationally and decentrally in the provinces of Sofala and Inhambane. GIZ is implementing the program on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). On behalf of GIZ, the consulting firm Integration GmbH works primarily on the implementation of labor market-oriented curricula and on the further education of vocational school teachers. The consulting firm Healthfocus GmbH supports the implementation of the HIV workplace program in the education sector. Effects Improving universal and gender-sensitive access to basic education • 84 percent of six-year-olds were enrolled in first grade in 2015. About 82 percent of girls are enrolled. As recently as 2005, only about half of the six-year-old girls entered first grade. More effective education planning and management • The innovative management management concept POEMA and associated training modules have been developed in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and other key stakeholders. Twelve training modules are used nationwide at different administrative levels and in different sectors. Sustainability is ensured through a POEMA trainer pool and POEMA meetings. By 2015, 45 percent of the staff of district education offices were trained in the priority provinces in POEMA. • All administrations draw up annual plans; the reaction is monitored and corrected if necessary. Cross-cutting issues such as HIV and gender are given more consideration. • The district Supervision of Schools Handbook, which was developed with the support of the project, has been introduced nationwide. • In 2015, 73 percent of the District Education Offices in the Sofala and Inhambane Provinces develop and budget their annual plans and implement monitoring in accordance with national standards. In 2012 it was only 22 percent. Improved Teacher Education • In 2016, 70 percent of teacher educators in Sofala and Inhambane use student-centered and participatory teaching methods. In 2013, there were only 27 percent. The advice of the program contributes to the fact that primary school children are taught in a sustainable way in good quality. • A participatory teaching methodology handbook developed by the program is used nationwide in teacher training. Stronger labor-market oriented vocational education • A new Vocational Training Framework Act for improved coordination and quality assurance of VET has been developed and adopted. A regulatory authority is being set up and a vocational training levy is in preparation. • Competence-based curricula have been developed and introduced in collaboration with the private sector. They define standards and competencies that apprentices should have at the end of their training and enable training oriented to the labor market. • 180 teachers were trained in competence-based vocational education, vocational education and technology in Mozambique and Germany; 57 of them have been certified. Young people are better prepared for the job market by more qualified teaching staff. • The management of the vocational schools supported by the project improves by setting up and accompanying quality management teams. The teams develop quality plans and are responsible for implementation and monitoring. • The cooperation of the program with the German Internet company Strato AG has improved the training of IT technicians in Mozambique. • A curriculum for training of renewable energy technicians has been developed and implemented. Together with the "Energizing Development" program, a training laboratory for renewable energy was set up at a vocational school. More HIV tests • 60 percent of teachers participating in annual awareness-raising activities under the HIV Workplace Program had taken an HIV test in 2016 over the past 12 months. In 2014, it was 53 percent. • Target group specific materials for information, education and communication are widely used in prevention work. PROJECT DESCRIPTION Context Access to basic education has improved greatly in recent years for many girls and boys in Mozambique. The primary school enrollment rate for six-year-olds has risen from just under 30 per cent in 2000 to over 80 per cent in 2015. Nevertheless, the quality of education remains unsatisfactory and still continues to drop out of school. In 2014 only 44 completed the seventh grade, graduating from primary school. This applies in particular to girls. Absenteeism, especially among teaching staff and school management, is a fundamental problem. Despite being a graduate, there are still insufficiently qualified teachers to become caterers for the growing number of students. Only one teacher is available for every 62 pupils. Shortcomings in the quality of the basic education system also affect technical education and vocational training. Their training is not sufficiently geared towards the needs of the labor market. Young people are not sharing in the benefits of the countrys economic growth. Substandard basic education and vocational training that is out of sync with the working world lead directly into poorly paid, unproductive and permanent poverty. Objective Children and youths, especially girls and young women, receive basic education relevant to the real world and employment-oriented vocational training, both characterized by good quality. Approach The program is fully integrated into the Mozambican Governments education strategy and vocational training reform. Pursuing a program-based approach coordinated with all donors, both at national and decentralized levels, in the provinces of Sofala and Inhambane. The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) commissioned GIZ to implement the program. The consulting firm Integration GmbH is working on the behalf of GIZ, in particular on the introduction of curricula geared to the labor market and the in-service training of vocational teachers. The consulting company Health Focus GmbH is providing support for the implementation of HIV workplace programs in the education sector. Results Overall access and gender equitable access to basic education have improved In 2015, 84 per cent of six-year-olds were enrolled in the first grade. Around 82 per cent of girls now start school. As recently as 2005, only about half-year-old females entered first grade. Education planning and management are more effective Working together with the education ministry and other key actors, the program developed POEMA, an innovative concept for administrative management, together with the related training modules. Twelve training modules are used throughout the country at various administrative levels and in different sectors. A POEMA trainer pool and POEMA meetings ensure the sustainability of the concept. By 2015, 45 per cent working in the district education offices had been trained in POEMA. All administrations draw up annual plans. Implementation of the plans is monitored and adjusted. Greater consideration is given to cross-cutting issues such as HIV / AIDS and gender. The program assisted in preparing a manual for the supervision of schools by the districts. The manual has now been introduced across the country. In 2015, 73 per cent of the district education offices in the provinces of Sofala and Inhambane drew up and prepared budgets for their annual plans. They also carry out monitoring tasks in accordance with the national regulations. In 2012 this figure was at 22 per cent. Teacher training has improved In 2016, 70 per cent of teacher trainers in Sofala and Inhambane were using learner-centered and participatory teaching methods, compared with only 27 per cent in 2013. The advice provided by the program is thus resulting in better quality instruction Primary school children on a lasting basis. A manual produced by the program on participatory teaching methods is used for in-service teacher training throughout the country. Technical education and vocational training are more closely geared to the labor market A new basic law on technical education and vocational training has been drafted and ADOPTED with a view to Improving coordination and quality assurance in this sector. A regulatory authority is being prepared for and is under way for a contribution towards being paid by companies. Skills-based curricula have been developed and introduced in cooperation with the private sector. They define standards and skills that should be considered at the end of their training. They help to bring in line with labor market requirements. 180 teachers have attended in-service courses in skills-based vocational training, vocational education and technology in Mozambique and Germany. So far, 57 of them have been certified. Better qualified teaching staff that are better prepared for the labor market. The management of the vocational schools covered by the program is improving through the establishment and support of quality management teams. These teams draw up quality plans and are responsible for implementation and monitoring. Strato AG, the program has been set to improve the quality of training for IT technicians in Mozambique. A training curriculum for renewable energy technicians was developed and launched. In cooperation with the Energizing Development Program, a training laboratory for renewables is set up at a vocational school. More HIV tests are carried out In 2016, 60 per cent of the teachers taking part in the HIV Workplace Program had taken an HIV test in the previous 12 months, as against 53 per cent in 2014. Target group -specific materials for information, education and communication activities are regularly used in prevention work, where they are very well-received.
