Poor countries spending more on science

According to SciDev.Net, spending on science in the developing world grew at three times the rate of that of richer countries between 2002 and 2007, according to figures released by the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS).

The growth of science in developing countries reflects the wisdom of UNESCO's founders in emphasizing the need to transfer scientific institutions to Asia, Africa and Latin America and to the need to increase support for the scientific efforts of UNESCO.
