Bringing science and development together through original news and analysis

Science matters — help us prove it!

Since the Green Revolution transformed farming methods around the world, science has been behind many development triumphs. Research saves children’s lives, improves election practice and can spark students’ imaginations.

Our mission at SciDev.Net over the past 15 years has been to make relevant, quality research accessible, usable and interesting for anyone who wants to see a more equal world.

But the charity faces two challenges.

First, we know NGOs and governments are not using scientific evidence and tech innovations as much as they could. Second, we are funded entirely by donor institutions, to whom we are grateful, and this funding is our lifeblood. However, donor funding is not limitless. We want to write more stories and support more Southern journalists, while maintaining our independence. And we want to keep our content free.

Please donate below to show your support and help prove that science should be at the heart of development.
