A new ‘3D’ agenda

Innovation, Sustainability, Development: A New Manifesto aims to challenge the mainstream models of science and technology for development that have become integral to government and international agency policy.

The Manifesto will explore alternative approaches of linking innovation to development in ways that address the “3Ds”

  • Directionality (towards specific Sustainability objectives)
  • equitable Distribution (of costs, risks, benefits)
  • Diversity (of socio-techno-ecological systems)

In doing so, the STEPS Centre hopes to help shape new policies and governance while helping to build a broader advocacy movement around these issues.
