Strategic Approaches To Science And Technology In Development

by Robert T. Watson, Strategic Approaches To Science And Technology In Development Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Strategic Approaches To Science And Technology In Development books, Watson, Crawford, and Farley examine the ways in which science and technology (S & T) support poverty alleviation and economic development and how these themes have been given emphasis or short shrift in various areas of the World Bank's work. Central to their thesis is the now well-established argument that development will increasingly depend on a country's ability to understand, interpret, select, adapt, use, transmit, diffuse, produce, and commercialize scientific and technological knowledge in ways appropriate to its culture, aspirations, and level of development. The authors go beyond this tenet, analyzing the importance of S & T for development within specific sectors. They present policy options for enhancing the effectiveness of S & T systems in developing countries, review previous experience of the World Bank and other donors in supporting S & T, and suggest changes that the World Bank and its partners can adopt to increase the impact of the work currently undertaken in S & T. The authors' main messages are: * S & T has always been important for development, but the unprecedented pace of advancement of scientific knowledge is rapidly creating new opportunities for and threats to development. * Most developing countries are largely unprepared to deal with the changes that S & T advancement will bring. * The World Bank's numerous actions in various domains of S & T could be more effective in producing the needed capacity improvements in client countries. * The World Bank could have a greater impact if it paid increased attention to S & T in education, health, rural development, private sector development, and the environment. The strategy emphasizes four S & T policy areas: education and human resources development, the private sector, the public sector, and information communications technologies. The paper--a joint product of the Education Team, Human Development Network, and the Environmentally and Socially Sustainable Development Vice Presidency--is part of a larger effort in the Bank to engage client countries in an active science and technology dialogue while increasing awareness of the centrality of these issues to the Bank's work.

Science And Technology Policy

by Clement Tisdell, Science And Technology Policy Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Science And Technology Policy books, I was asked recently to prepare an independent background report on the subject of priority assessment in science and technology policy for the Australian Science and Technology Council. The Council (while not necessarily endorsing this book) suggested that a wider audience could be interested in the type of material contained in my report and kindly gave me permission to publish the material in my own right. The present book contains this and other material, some of which was presented at a seminar on National Science Policy: Implications for Government Departments arranged by the Department of Science and the Environment. Additional ideas were developed in response to comments on the manuscript by referees, as a result of discussions with Professor John Metcalfe and Dr Peter Stubbs of Manchester University, a conversation with Dr Keith Hartley of the University of York and in the wake of a communication from Dr Ken Tucker, Assistant Director, Bureau of Industry Economics, Australia. Science and technology policy affects and concerns everyone of us if for no other reason than we cannot escape in this interdependent world from the economic, social and environmental overs pills generated by science and technology. We must face the problems and promises inherent in new and existing science and technology whether we like it or not. Not surprisingly this book finds that all industrialized countries seem to be facing similar economic and social problems.
