National Science, Technology and Innovation Policy

UNESCO assists its Member States in formulating their Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) policies, strategies and plans as well as in the reform of their science systems, by bringing to light policy options for the governance of science systems in new contexts and supporting participatory policy formulation and/or reviews to improve science management at the national level. This is done by means of the provision of guidelines and methodologies, technical advice and guidance on formulation, implementation and monitoring, together with a review of policies and plans concerning national S&T activities.

In particular, UNESCO Phnom Penh is supporting the National Committee on Science and Technology to encourage the development and implementation of science, technology and innovation policy in Cambodia for sustainable development and poverty eradication as part of UNESCO Jakarta’s regional flagship programme “COMprehensive Programme to Enhance Technology, Engineering and ScieNCe Education (COMPETENCE) in Asia.
