  • Science and technology for the eight billion people of the planet by 2020 : Basic report no. 5 : The USA project : Partnerships for global development : The clearing horizon


Rapid and widespread change logically requires that the United States unbinds its cooperation for development and adapts it to the new landscapes of political, economic and technological opportunities. Cooperative development programmes must more effectively balance growth with equity, management with participation, large-scale with small-scale endeavours, and global campaigns with local needs. The principles and criteria that should govern the choice of programmes for development are outlined, and the role that science and technology plays in a new approach to cooperation for development is highlighted.
