Bringing science and development together through news and analysis

SciDev.Net Global Review 2012

Copyright: / Gawrav Sinha


SciDev.Net studied the different contextual settings within which policymakers, the private sector, NGOs, media organisations and the research community operate to better understand how to mainstream more science and technology evidence for development and poverty reduction purposes.
This report presents findings from a series of research projects that were commissioned in order to create a robust picture of the context and opportunities for mainstreaming evidence, helping develop the next set of SciDev.Net strategic objectives (2013–2017).
