Paper on Nanotechnology, Water, and Development

Abstract:
This paper was commissioned by Meridian Institute’s Global Dialogue on Nanotechnology and the Poor: Opportunities and Risks (GDNP). The goals of the GDNP are to: (1) raise awareness about the implications of nanotechnology for the poor; (2) close the gaps within and between sectors of society to catalyze actions that address specific opportunities and risks related to nanotechnology, especially those of most significance to developing countries; and (3) identify ways that science and technology can play an appropriate role in the development process.The GDNP is supported by the International Development Research Centre (Canada), UK Department for International Development, and The Rockefeller Foundation (U.S.).
