      National strategies for science and technology. International and civil wars decimated Cambodia's scientific capacity in the s. More recently, Cambodia has been held back by the limited co-ordination of science and technology across ministries and the absence of any overarching national strategy for science and development.   Arab world must innovate in science, says UNESCO. A chapter in the newly-released UNESCO Science Report outlines the challenges science and technology face in the Arab world due to a lack of innovation and poor funding. However, it also touches on a number of promising developments in the region which may lead to a science renaissance.
