An Assault on Poverty: Basic Human Needs, Science and Technology

This book published jointly by IDRC and UNCTAD analyses poverty reduction and the role of science and technology in sustainable human development, technical and vocational education, health and small-scale economic activities, along with other relevant issues. It concludes that science and technology does create potential opportunities for eradicating poverty, but that realizing this potential depends on social and political will and other key issues.
