Some Case Studies from Africa

ISBN: 9780850927429
Publisher:Commonwealth Secretariat
Binding:Paperback
Language:English
Pagination:268

Human resource development in science and technology is vital in building a critical mass of skilled individuals ready to play a part in the New Africa Partnership (NEPAD). Many African countries have committed considerable resources to its exploitation but more needs to be done to promote, develop and sustain a relevant science and technology culture, in order to narrow the gap between the countries of sub-Saharan Africa and the industrialised countries.

Through country case studies centred around Sub-Saharan Africa this book provides critical insights into why science and technology should be popularised; what and whose science and technology systems should be introduced and promoted; and how science and technology should be implemented and practised. This book is a collaboration between the Commonwealth Secretariat and the African Forum for Childrens Literacy in Science and Technology (AFCLIST).
