ASADI IV in London
The fourth annual ASADI conference was held Nov. 4-5 at the Royal Society, the national science academy of the United Kingdom and Commonwealth. Leaders of several African science academies met with their counterparts from around the world as well as with policymakers and officials of donor agencies and foundations to discuss how the unique, independent expert advice of local science academies can form a basis for decision making and development goals.
