We need a 'slow race' for science-based development

Across the world, in both developed and developing countries, governments are realising that citizen engagement is vital to ensure that science and technology meets people's needs.

We live in a time of unprecedented international interest and investment in linking science and technology with development. Rapid advances in information technology, biotechnology and nanoscience hold promise of new drugs, vaccines and better seeds, and lay claim to the term 'breakthrough' as solutions to poverty, illness and environmental degradation.

The science races are on. But who will win the prizes, and who will be left behind? And will this extra investment in science and technology really work for the poor?
