NEPAD: African Forum on Science and Technology for Development (AFSTD)


Date: 15/12/2004


AFSTD was established by the NEPAD to promote the application of S&T for economic growth and poverty reduction. NEPAD is a pledge by African leaders, based on a common vision and a firm and shared conviction, that they have a pressing duty to eradicate poverty and to place their countries, both individually and collectively, on a path of sustainable growth and development, and at the same time to participate actively in the world economy and body politic. African leaders explicitly recognize that Africa's economic recovery and the transition to sustainable development will not be achieved without investments in science and technology.
