Title: Nanotechnology and the Millennium Development Goals: Energy, Water, and Agri-food
Author: Cortes Lobo, Rodrigo ; Cozzens, Susan E. ; Soumonni, Ougundiran ; Woodson, Thomas
Abstract: We analyzed the progress in pro-poor nanotechnology applications in energy, water, and agrifood sectors in achieving the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). We considered the results from an international panel of experts (Salamanca-Buentello 2004) that identified the top ten nanotechnology applications that they believed could speed up progress towards the MDG goals. Our results confirm little advancement in this respect.
