This paper presents an overview of science and technology policy in Africa as it has developed from the Lagos Plan for Scientific Research and Training in 1964 through the Arusha Plan of Action in 1987. The analysis uses the recommendations of these and other intervening conferences as the starting point for discussing the shifts in national science and technology policies, their impacts on African society and economy, and the required changes in policy structures and processes.
