Science in developing countries...
"Romain Murenzi, a physicist and former math teacher who became one of the architects of Rwanda’s acclaimed science-for-development strategy, has joined the AAAS International Office as its new director in the Center for Science, Technology, and Sustainable Development.
"The appointment, effective 30 July, underscores AAAS’s commitment to science and technology engagement with the developing world. In an interview, Murenzi said that the Center should become a catalyst that helps marshal S&T knowledge and resources to address challenges ranging from hunger and a lack of drinking water to science education and threats to the environment."
