How national science academies in developed countries can assist development in sub-Saharan Africa

By Robert E. T. Ward, Joann Fong, Bernard Eric Michal Jones, Lorna Ann Casselton and Stephen James Cox


There is good evidence that training skilled scientists and carrying out research make a positive contribution to economic growth and development of nations in sub-Saharan Africa. National science academies of developed nations are supporting development primarily by promoting the growth of science academies in sub-Saharan nations, and also by analysing and advising on the contribution of science to development, and establishing exchanges and collaborations with African scientists. In future, the activities of national science academies in developed countries may need to be more explicitly coordinated, between individual initiatives and with the plans of African nations and international organisations
