What are the visions for science in Africa ? 20 - Amadou Tidiane Ndiaye: new obstacles for development

Sustainability, transparency, human rights and gender must now be taken into account.

"Africa in its research and development is facing four obstacles that did not exist before.

Development must be done within the framework of sustainable development, within the framework of transparency, within the framework of respect for human rights and within the framework of respect for gender.

I'm not saying it's bad. But these are new obstacles for our countries that have never been encountered before.

It is frustrating not to continue this debate because we actually only have five minutes to talk about it, but I am asking the questions to make you understand the whole issue behind it. We have obstacles that did not exist before in the development process. These are advantages perhaps, no doubt. But this is a debate that we must have."
