Summary note
Science and technology are key drivers of economic growth, and may also help provide answers for managing resources and reducing pollution, addressing climate change and preserving biodiversity, as well as reducing disease and safeguarding health and well-being, while maintaining the general quality of life. This publication provides the proceedings of an international workshop, held in South Africa, intended to address how international cooperation in science and technology can further the three inter-related aspects (economic, social and environmental) of the development process. The workshop focused on good practices in international S&T partnerships, specifically in the areas of water and energy.--Publisher's description.
Contains papers from OECD-South Africa Workshop on International Science and Technology Co-operation for Sustainable Development, 21-22 November 2005, held at Kwa-Maritane, Pilanesberg National Park, South Africa.
