Scientific advances in South Asia are being applauded along with resigned sighs about the context -of (almost inevitable) poverty, hunger and morbidity and now, the dreaded contribution from the region to worsening environments, climate variability and change. Science and technology in South Asian nation states seem to be caught between a public space that questions the authority and credibility of science and whimsical politics and policy making that pushes science to claim incredulous development impacts. How can science gain a legitimate democratic voice in shaping policies and plans that will direct its own contents, people’s access to its results, as well as society’s capacities to utilize its knowledge outputs to sustainable economic and social ends? Communication, open to verification and debate is crucial to this end. This is my rationale for joining this network.
