A meeting hosted by the United Kingdom Department for International Affairs (DFID) has heard that the ‘remarkable recent economic growth’ in many African countries may be able to sustain science through domestic funding.

Speaking at the launch of the Royal Society-DFID Africa Capacity Building Initiative in London, DFID chief scientific adviser and director of research, Chris Whitty, pointed out that lack of scientists is potentially a major block to the development of middle-income countries in Africa,.

He is of the view that developing the capacity of science in African countries, by African scientists, is going to be essential.
