TWAS Regional Offices Name Change

20 June 2018, 09:52


TWAS Regional Office for sub-Saharan Africa (TWAS-ROSSA) would like to notify you that TWAS has strategically renamed all its regional offices, effectively from 15 June 2018. TWAS-ROSSA is now TWAS Sub-Saharan Africa Regional Partner (TWAS-SAREP).

As a result of an Internal Audit at TWAS in 2017, their office was requested to change the name of the Regional Offices because the use of the term “office” could imply UNESCO employees in these collaborating parties. This recommendation was discussed at the TWAS Management Meeting and alternative names were suggested which were later approved by TWAS Council. The change is effective immediately and that major adjustments will gradually be visible on our website, social media accounts, letterheads, communications and brochures.

The regional partner has begun with the transition and would highly appreciate your continued support. The table below indicate the name changes as approved by TWAS Council:
