IDWG Sep 11

During the past two months, the UNA Edinburgh International Development Working Group has been conducting research into the following initiatives;

An agroforestry prototype project in Sub Saharan Africa

A new concept exploring the creation of a global substitute for the penal Licensing and Patenting costs of registering and protecting development innovation within Southern Nations

An educational project to assist both Academia and Political actors in Scotland to better understand International Development and UN issues

We also continue with our building of an ID presentation which is intended for launch in late Spring 2012 which will bring together all aspects of expertise within our Working Group and deliver potential and salient solutions or information and advice, to assist ID in developing nations.
