Astronomy has received high priority status in South Africa. Major projects in support of this include Southern African Large Telescope (SALT), Square Kilometre Array (SKA), High Energy Stereoscopic System (HESS), the Karoo Array Telescope (KAT) etc.

The Multiwavelength Astronomy funding instrument is an interim intervention for human capacity development through knowledge production and support in multiwavelength astronomy, implemented in parallel to the development of a comprehensive strategy for astronomy in South Africa.
