SciDev.Net Africa Launches
SciDev.Net is pleased to announce the launch of SciDev.Net Africa, a regional network covering the countries of sub-Saharan Africa, the first in a series of such initiatives.
We hope that SciDev.Net Africa will expand our regional coverage, improve the dissemination of SciDev.Net material, and play a key role in achieving capacity build-ing in science and technology communication.
SciDev.Net Africa is being launched at a workshop on 'Science Communication for Sustainable Development' in Entebbe, Uganda, which runs from 29 September to 3 October. The event, organised by SciDev.Net, will bring together more than 50 professional science communicators, including journalists, editors, information officers, policy researchers and scientists from 11 countries across the continent.
We will be posting daily bulletins direct from the workshop at:
