Donation appeal: We need your support

For the last twenty years, our aim has been to ensure that science and technology has a central role and positive impact on sustainable development and poverty reduction in the global South.

A lack of funding now threatens our ability to carry out this vital service. SciDev.Net – like many charities and media organisations – is operating in an incredibly challenging environment.

Your support would go a long way to keep our content free as well as provide essential training and resources for journalists and researchers.

Donate securely today and help us continue to be able to put science at the heart of development.
