This is the latest contribution from Ogodo - I am presently in Zambia on a poor Internet line, so I have not been able to read the article myself. But see you all soon i Copenhagen.
And here is the link to Ogodos article http://scidev.net/en/news/africa-facing-climate-data-shortage.html
Padma has also sent us an update - here is the mail from her:
Last week (5 Nov) SciDev.net published a sub-focus on clean tech transfer as a run-up to COP-15. It is there on the top container on the home page "Talking clean tech at Copenhagen"
It contains an editorial by David Dickson: " as public good"
and a feature by me: "Climate change's tech transfer challenge".
besides earlier news, features and opinions
October saw a flurry of related meetings/events in Delhi.
Pls check out on:
Link between patent law and patent transfer 'not proven'

For a recap;
SDN had published a spotlight on climate and vector-borne diseases in September
and on REDD in July
In November SDN published an Opinion on No simple solution to livestock and climate change
and my feature on adaptation: Adaptation is crucial too
Best Wishes Padma
