UN Technology Bank, TWAS and ICGEB launch a programme to building scientific development in LDCs


Trieste/Gebze – Scientific skills and personal engagement alone are not enough to develop a career in science, especially in developing countries. Assets to build high-quality education and achieve meaningful results include learning from experienced researchers to guide scientific growth and creating a collaborative network for long-term support and cooperation.

UN Technology Bank and UNOOSA partner to expand the use of satellite data in LDCs


Gebze – Satellite data will be easier to access and use in least developed countries, thanks to a new partnership between the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) and the UN Technology Bank for Least Developed Countries (LDCs).

The new collaboration will enhance the capacity and skills of policy and decision makers to access different types of space infrastructure. This will include data and applications that can help in disaster management cycles, planning for climate change adaptation and natural resource management.

UN Technology Bank and The Commonwealth join forces to support LDCs


Gebze – The UN Technology Bank and The Commonwealth have formed a new partnership to support least developed countries (LDC’s) through technology transfer, capacity building and knowledge sharing.

The two organisations signed a memorandum of understanding committing to collaborate to build science, technology and innovation capacity for least developed countries in the Commonwealth. The strengthened cooperation will focus specifically on promoting structural transformation of LDC economies in an effort to help eradicate poverty, fostering long-term sustainable development.
