DFID Consultations

DFID website for the consultation:

The British government's Department for International Development (DFID) "recognises that science, engineering, technology and innovation (SETI) have an important role to play in meeting the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and in supporting development beyond 2015. In the words of DFID?s Secretary of State, Rt. Hon. Hilary Benn MP, 'Science and technology are vital for development, and vital for our fight against world poverty'.

DFID is now in the process of developing a Science and Innovation Strategy. The work is being led by DFID's Chief Scientific Adviser, Professor Sir Gordon Conway. The Strategy will provide a scientific lens for DFID thinking and future policy development and will help guide our engagement on SETI with our partners in developing countries and the international community, as well as in the UK."

DFID is inviting comments from people in developing nations, partner organizations, and others on this strategy
