Implementing Africa's Science and Technology Consolidated Plan of Action



DFID supported the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD) Office of Science and Technology to support the design of institutional arrangements and strengthening of capacity for implementing 'Africa's Science and Technology Consolidated Plan of Action'. In early August 2005, the Bureau of the African Ministerial Council on Science and Technology instructed NEPAD Office of Science and Technology to start preparing background studies and initiate processes to guide and ensure speedy implementation of the Plan. LTS, in collaboration with the University of Edinburgh, supported the process through a short-term advisor based in Pretoria responsible for preparing two high-level policy papers on instruments and institutions for financing research and development based on global trends in Asia and conducting an international survey of donors funding science and technology in developing countries.
