About this book

This volume examines the progress of Sub-Saharan African countries in advancing science and technology in the context of the structural adjustment programmes they have undertaken. John Enos looks at the pursuit of science and technology both before and after structural adjustment programmes have been attempted in Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. He looks at the efficiency with which the research and development has been carried out, the transferability of scientific and technical resources from one activity to another and the directions in which advances are channelled. The institutions are engaged in providing resources are identified as well as the rates at which resources are allocated. Finally, John Enos also looks at how much resources are devoted to science and technology and with what objectives. The findings in this important study will be of interest to students and academics in economic development and to professional economists and administrators directing economic development agencies as well as to officials in Economic planning and finance ministries in developing countries.
