9780821373569: Building Science, Technology and Innovation Capacity in Rwanda (Africa Human Development Series)

'Building Science, Technology, and Innovation Capacity in Rwanda' presents the methodology, policy conclusions, and detailed action plans that emerged from a World Bank science, technology, and innovation (STI) capacity-building program in Rwanda in 2006-07. This book illustrates that even an economy dominated by subsistence agriculture such as Rwanda's needs to develop STI capacity to address everyday issues such as providing energy and clean water to rural areas, and to compete in the global economy.

This book provides new insights into the STI capacity-building process and shows that this process is not an activity solely for wealthy countries, but is, in fact, a necessity for poorer countries that want to improve their economy. The methodology presented can be used to help poor countries achieve the Millennium Development Goals and increase their competitiveness, while helping middle-income countries to compete on the basis of innovation and quality.

'Building Science, Technology, and Innovation Capacity in Rwanda' will be useful for policy makers and those in nongovernmental organizations in developing countries working to promote agribusiness, economic policy, and education, to reduce poverty, and to develop rural economic strategies.
