MASHAV’s commitment to multi-level collaboration with international partners, coupled with its integrated and sustained approach to humanitarian capacity building, has yielded tangible results in addressing the challenges of food security, water scarcity, and more in priority countries across Africa. In 2018, the Africa Center celebrates the 60th anniversary of MASHAV, the advancement of US-Israeli development cooperation in Africa and beyond, and future development collaboration between these two nations.
