COMMONWEALTH WEEK: WHY WE NEED SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION

It's Commonwealth Week. Julia Day has written a piece for the IDS website about the Manifesto project, which highlights alternative ways to link innovation, science and technology to development.

"Standard policies link innovation, science and technology to development in ways that are not always the most sustainable and equitable solutions for the people they seek to help. As a result, they often fail to address the challenges of an uncertain, dynamic and rapidly-changing world."

Science, Technology and innovation is central to social and economic progress
