This is the most recent addition to the SASAC suite of programmes. The Early Postgraduate Education Programme is aimed at developing a systems analysis component or module which could be taught at the honours level at selected institutions in South Africa. In 2018, Wits developed and implemented an honours course in Global Change and Systems Analysis. Subtitled Impacts on Soils, Plants, Animals and Humans in Southern Africa – the Next 50 Years. The course was presented by a series of experts from academic institutions, government departments and research organisations. It consisted of reading material, seminars, computer-based activities and discussion groups. Presentations covered topics such as systems approaches to global change; an introduction to systems analysis; climate systems modelling and South Africa; and global change and social systems.
