Summary:
This African Workshop on Industrial Transformation was the last in a series of eight regional workshops organised by the International Human Dimensions Programme on Global Environmental Change (IHDP). The meeting provided a unique and timely opportunity to discuss the special needs and concerns of Africa as regards the proposed IHDP research project on Industrial Transformation. The extremely frank, lively and open discussion among the participants led to a very constructive review of research priorities of special relevance to Africa. It also highlighted opportunities for possible new networks and collaboration on these issues within Africa--and for collaboration with others doing similar research beyond Africa.
