Welcome to UW-Madison’s CAI

The Central Africa Initiative (CAI) was launched at UW-Madison in 2012

to promote closer collaboration between research institutions, government agencies, and non-governmental organizations working on conservation, agriculture, and sustainable development in Central Africa.

We partner with Central African, North American, and European research institutions, using complementary sets of knowledge and skills to find solutions to ecological and social challenges facing the Congo Basin rainforests and surrounding region.
