Science, Technology and Innovation top Africa's agenda

"African leaders are poised to support science in Africa as never before. The African Union Summit taking place in Addis Ababa from 22 to 30 January will take as its special theme Science, Technology and Innovation for Africa's Socio-economic Development. The Summit is likely to give a strong push to the implementation of Africa's Consolidated Plan of Action. As the convener of the UN Cluster on Science and Technology, UNESCO contributed both intellectually and financially to elaboration of the Plan and preparations for the Summit. UNESCO has also aligned its programs on African priorities, as illustrated in Science in Africa: UNESCO's Contribution to Africa's Plan for Science and Technology to 2010."
