In what concerns other UNU initiatives in Sub-Saharan Africa, the envisaged new UNU Institute on Integrated Management of Material Fluxes and of Resources (UNU-FLORES) is destined to create a Twin Institute in Mozambique as a regional hub for Southern Africa and even beyond.
UNU-FLORES is about to be established in Dresden, Germany, in cooperation with the Dresden University of Technology (TUD). It will be funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the Saxon State Ministry for Higher Education, Research and the Fine Arts (SMWK). 
UNU-FLORES will contribute to improve the efficiency of the use and management of resources, such as water, soil and waste in developing and emerging countries in scientific, educational, managerial, technological and institutional terms.
As a result of research and development projects, decision support for various target groups, such as ministries and governmental organizations, municipalities, enterprises, NGOs and other stakeholders will be provided. The Institute is to be consisted out of five departments: Systems and Flux Analysis, Global Change, Water Management, Soil and Land use Management, Waste Management and Contaminated Sites.
UNU-FLORES, as all UNU Institutes, will engage both in policy relevant research in the above described challenging areas and in postgraduate capacity-building activities at Master and PhD level. At postgraduate level a very close synergy will be sought and explored with similar programmes offered by TUD.

Feeling so happy to hear about the news today about the UNU - Technical University Dresden collaboration. More than a coincidence that issues around sustainability (a concept which was developed in Saxony back in the 18th century) will find a place in Dresden's World Trade Center close to DIU (Dresden International University).

..... for some years, I have done action research on sustainability, especially in the context of process design, and lean thinking. Some thoughts can be found on

It would be more than great to combine your work with other initiatives that reside in the city of Dresden around art, science, technology, and education.

Looking forward to further connect.
