Development Through Science

Skilled management of science and technology is essential for development. In order to help member countries increase their capability and expertise in these areas, the Secretariat, through the work of the Commonwealth Science Council (CSC), emphasises four main areas for action: management of biological diversity and genetic resources, water and mineral resources, energy, and capability-building. This last area was added at the 19th biennial meeting of the CSC in Malawi in May 1997.
