[Afrikanisches Zentrum fuer das Studium derTechnologie]
Founded in 1988, the African Centre for Technology Studies (ACTS) is an international inter-governmental policy research and training organization located in Nairobi, Kenya. The Centre's activities focus on the implementation of Agenda 21 and related conventions on biological diversity, climate change and desertification. The founders of ACTS had the vision of an organization that would steer Africa from the depths of poverty and dependence on the West to ideas-based development, focusing mainly on development and influencing of policies that would help Africa assert itself in the various fora that discussed emerging new technologies and issues to do with Biotechnology, Biosafety, Climate Change and the Environment.
