Home > Press > FONAI comments to the G8-African Development Agenda

Abstract:
Focus Nanotechnology Africa Inc.(FONAI); the US-EU-Africa-Asia-Pacific and

Caribbean Nanotechnology Initiative (USEACANI) cutting across 158 countries with special focus on US, Africa, Pacific and Caribbean, US-EU-Africa-Asia-Pacific and Caribbean Academy of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (USEACANN) applauds the G8 for putting African Development on their agenda. FONAI- USEACANI believes that the two major problems of Africa are science and technological poverty and brain drain. FONAI believes in science and technology being the bedrock to any meaningful development. Further, FONAI affirms that any meaningful sustainable development in Africa needs an honest, holistic and committed approach.

FONAI comments to the G8-African Development Agenda

Ithaca, NY | Posted on June 17th, 2009

The objectives of FONAI-USEACANI are:

* Improve institutional structures so they foster and nurture development
* Support long-term nanoscience and engineering research leading to fundamental discoveries of novel phenomena, processes and tools;
* Encourage inter-disciplinary, multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional

cooperation required in nanoscience and nanotechnology;

* Provide new types of education to train the experts in nanoscience and

nanotechnology and entrepreneurs of the future;

* Create the physical infrastructure to enable first-class basic research, exploration of applications, development of new industries, and rapid commercialization of innovations in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology.

FONAI wants to fulfill these objectives by using diaspora scientists and their allies in 158 countries of coverage by means of nanoscience and nanotechnology, which is very simple science, but highly impacting.

FONAI-USEACANI has a proposed budget of $10 billion for next ten years. FONAI believes that Africa is in a state of emergency, and consistent with the laudable goals/elements that FONAI upholds, the whole continent urgently needs very quick and committed approach with zero tolerance to corruption.

Thus, FONAI totally agrees with your slogan: "A world with less

poverty and inequality is also a fairer, safer, stabler world".

We wish you the best in your deliberations geared towards committed implementation of your developmental agenda.
