At the request of the Government of Nigeria, an international advisory board for the reform of the country's science, technology and innovation system was established by UNESCO in October 2004. A core activity of the reform programme was a joint review of investment, industry and innovation in Nigeria involving UNESCO, UNCTAD, UNIDO and WIPO. Financed in equal shares by the Government of Nigeria and UNESCO/Japan Funds-in-Trust to the tune of US$1 million, the review was part of preparatory work for a donors' conference. Nigeria was planning to call to fund implementation of a multi-year plan of action on science, technology and innovation.
