Description

Integration of Science and Technology with Development: Caribbean and Latin American Problems in the Context of the United Nations Conference on Science and Technology for Development discusses the science and technology (S&T) problems in developing countries of the Western hemisphere. This book is organized into five part encompassing 20 chapters. The five parts deal with the issues arising from the basic propositions of the United Nations Conference on Science and Technology for Development (UNCSTD), such as the problems involving building up S&T capability, infrastructure and technology transfer, technological problems in the Caribbean. Other issues discussed include the science and technology policies in Latin America, and the UNCSTD symposium preparations. The book ends with a presentation of a brief debate on the topics of research on science and technology in Latin America and the Caribbean, and with a report of the Symposium.
