Science andTechnology: a baseline Study on Science and Technology Framework and Higher Education in the SADC Region

Mouton, Johann

Abstract:
Science and Technology is one of the most important vehicles for propelling Africa’s development and the creation of a knowledge society in Southern Africa. The critical importance of S&T to regional development is set out in the 2005 NEPAD document: Africa’s Science and Technology Consolidated Plan of Action (CPA). The CPA articulates Africa’s common objectives and commitment to collective action in order to develop and use S&T for the socioeconomic transformation of the African continent, and its integration into the global economy. In order to better understand the current state of S&T in the region, SARUA commissioned this study to provide a situational analysis of selected S&T topics and indicators across the 14 SADC countries. The study provides a “mapping” of the science systems of these countries, and makes some observations and comments on issues and priorities that arise from the findings.
