Introduction & Background

The Africa-UK Engineering for Development Partnership (A-UK Partnership) was established in March 2010.
The partnership brings together the engineering community in Africa and the UK in a consortium led by the Africa Engineers Forum, The Royal Academy of Engineering and the Institution of Civil Engineers. The purpose of the partnership is to strengthen the capacity of the African engineering profession and promote mutually beneficial links between engineers in Africa and the UK.

In 2015, SIP continued its effort to forge relationships with the representative engineering institution in each of the Southern African Federation of Engineering Organisations (SAFEO) member countries.  At the same time SIP has maintained excellent collaboration with our international partners, namely ASCE, ICE, IStructE, and Institution of Engineers India (IEI).
