Description

SciDev.Net is a non-profit organisation that produces news, views and analysis on information about science and technology for global development. They primarily engage with development professionals, policymakers, researchers, the media and the informed public. The organisation was founded in 2001 with the aim to redress the imbalance in scientific knowledge between rich and poor countries. It does so through its free-to-access website, regional networks and specialist workshops. SciDev.Net aims to help individuals and organisations apply evidence and insights from science and technology to decision-making in order to have a positive impact on equitable and sustainable development and poverty reduction. The main office is based in London but there are six regional desks based in Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, Latin America & Caribbean, South-East Asia & Pacific, Middle-East & North Africa and West Africa.
