Research Makes Sense

Department for Research Cooperation, SAREC
Research Cooperation 2004 / In this yearbook we argue that low income countries need a proper basis for research. We outline how comprehensive funding for research could be aligned in support of national strategies for research development. We also seek to demonstrate the link between research and the poverty focus and rights perspective, as well as the central elements outlined in the Swedish policy for global development. Developing research skills and institutions for research in low-income countries, enhances the capacity to engage in research cooperation contributing to global public goods.
