About this book


An examination of developing countries' ability to benefit from new generic technologies in the realms of information, communication, biotechnology and new materials. The book demonstrates why some developing countries have made considerable progress in absorbing the new technologies while most are still at the starting-blocks, and draws on the international donor community's experience to analyse appropriate aid policies and strategies.
