"Central African states to enact science plan"

Read the full article by Catherine Brahic, SciDev.Net, 3 October 2006.

"Science ministers from the region who met in Cameroon on 26-27 September said they would implement Africa's Science and Technology Consolidated Plan of Action.

"The plan was endorsed last September (see Support urged for US$160m plan for African science) and will be the focus of discussions at the next African Union summit in January 2007 (see AU summit 2007)."

Comment: I wish them good luck! But I fear that unless political and economic conditions improve in the region, not much science will be done.
