          Scientific research in the engineering and technology domains plays a centric role in realizing sustainable development in Africa. In particular, a multidisciplinary research (and sometimes even cross-disciplinary) approach is required when tackling Africas complex challenges such as poverty, climate change, energy access, water resources management, energy-water-food nexus, sustainable urban environment, cybersecurity, and others. To advance this research, African researchers should be empowered to conduct high-quality research and communicate their findings and recommendations to all stakeholders in open-access platforms. Building on the above, the Sudanese Researchers Foundation (SRF) is proud to announce the launch of the African Journal of Engineering & Technology (AJET); our inaugural open-access peer-reviewed journal focusing on engineering, technology, and sustainable development.
