Two Decades in the Womb
The Gestation of Zimbabwe's Science and Technology Policy, 1980-2002
Two Decades in the Womb sets out to unravel the challenges that are embedded in Science and Technology policy formation in Zimbabwe.
This book assesses the reasons why it took 22-years for Zimbabwe to formulate the national S&T policy despite the fact that the issue was on the institutional agenda-setting since 1980.
The book reveals that S&T policy formation is complex.
One of the major institutional problems was the fragmentation of the policy making process.
There was no institutional coherence and synergism.
This resulsted in discontinuities and abandonment of previous efforts.
The national administrative and management structures of S&T were not very explicit.
