Chapter 5 addresses the capacity of developing countries to meet their research needs. Although there are vast disparities among countries (both industrial and developing) in the conduct and value of research, there are certain common elements useful for organizing the analysis. These include the means for research (budgets, staff, infrastructure); the relevance of the programs and policies; the quality of the research; the use of research results; and the management of research. National research capacity is also influenced by the opportunities for regional cooperation.
