Draft National STI Policy

Call for Comments

Soon after independence in 1957, Ghana realized the importance of creating a national capacity for STI. A number of scientific institutions were built to address the challenge of a young state emerging from a colonial era and establishing its membership in the Commonwealth of Nations.

Today there is an even more crucial role for STI in national development. Therefore the National Science, Technology and Innovation Policy aims in broad terms, to provide a framework for stimulating innovation in the economy and the society. The Ministry of Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation (MESTI) has the mandate to promote science and technology application in the country and to create the conditions and enabling environment for innovations to occur. In line with this mandate, MESTI presents this policy document as the fundamental basis of its endeavours.
