The International Science Council (ISC) is featuring contributions from the global science community on Rethinking Human Development. This is a joint project with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
In this contribution, OAD Director, Kevin Govender, and Prof Carolina Odman at the Inter-University Institute for Data Intensive Astronomy in South Africa, explore how science and technology can fundamentally change the context in which human development is defined.
