In recognition of World Science day for Peace and Development, on November 10, UNESCO Office will be organizing a forum at the Mekele University in the Tigray Region of Ethiopia. All the presidents of the various higher education Institutes within the country have been invited to discuss the progress of Science and Technology in the country with a view of understanding the challenges that exist and in what ways they should be addressed. At the event, UNESCO will also donate a container with more that USD 300,000 worth of scientific books, journals and periodicals to the Mekele University. The World Science Day celebrations will pave the way for a forum on the development of Science Journalism in the country that will report on issues concerning Science, Health, Education, and Agriculture (SHEAR). UNESCO will also support the publication of articles in the two local Tigray newspapers and the airing of a Public Service Announcement on a weekly environmental radio program.
