In this new multimedia resource, based on a videoconference with Russian university members, UNCTAD's Angel Gonzalez-Sanz presents the findings of the Technology and Innovation Report (TIR) 2010, the first in a new series published by the Division on Technology and Logistics (DTL), home of the Virtual Institute.

The report,  "Enhancing Food Security in Africa Through Science, Technology and Innovation" points to innovation as a way to help Africa pull out of the agricultural productivity stagnation that has caused serious problems of food insecurity and a downturn in many of the continents' economies.
