Science and technology

The United Nations continued in 1988 to strengthen the scientific and technological capacities of developing countries by mobilizing financial resources, encouraging the flow of technology to those countries and upgrading institutional arrangements. The framework of these efforts was, as in previous years, the 1979 Vienna Programme of Action on Science and Technology for Development. Preparations for the Programme’s end-of-decade review were carried out by the United Nations Centre for Science and Technology for Development, the Advisory Committee on Science and Technology for Development and other United Nations bodies.
