Inquiry status: inquiry concluded, report published
In the Science and Technology Committee’s 2004 report on ‘The Use of Science in UK international development policy’, the Department for International Development’s (DfID) capacity building activities were identified as an area of weakness, with too much focus on short-term solutions and the lack of a holistic approach to capacity building.
The Science and Technology Committee has agreed to conduct an inquiry to look at DfID’s current activities to build scientific capacity in developing countries.
