Rwanda: Science, Development and the Rebuilding of Rwanda
As Rwanda sought to rebuild after the horrors of the 1994 genocide, its development strategy emphasised science and technology. Romain Murenzi, who served as Rwanda’s science minister for eight years, describes the lessons this approach might offer to other developing countries.

But in the developing world, and especially in the forty-eight least developed countries, such mechanisms are usually lacking. These countries are extremely poor and struggle with issues of hunger, disease and governance. Increasingly, these problems are aggravated by climate change. In the face of such challenges, weaknesses in systems for scientific advice are understandable.
