Brian Gitta, 24, has reportedly become the first Ugandan to win the prestigious Africa Prize for Engineering Innovation, after he invented a device which tests malaria without drawing blood.

NEW DELHI: India has some of the worst air pollution in the world and smog levels often spike during its sweltering summers, when smoke-belching diesel generators are used to offset power shortages

Nearly a decade after scientists introduced a method to kill Opuntia stricta, an invasive cactus that has colonised large sections of Laikipia North, pastoralists continue to lose livestock at an a

KAMPALA, Uganda–A device that detects malaria without drawing blood has made it into the finals of the prestigious 2018 Africa Prize for Engineering Innovation.

Despite significant achievements in sustainable energy innovation and market scaling of technologies such as solar, wind energy storage and others, the rate of change is not fast enough.

The Technology and Innovation Report 2018: Harnessing Frontier Technologies for Sustainable Development notes that change is becoming exponential thanks to the power of digital platforms and innovative combinations of different technologies that become possible every day.

Technological innovation is crucial to enable progress in the transformation of the global energy system. However, policy makers need to refresh the priorities in such innovation to address new challenges, such as integrating high shares of renewable power and electrifying transport, industry and buildings.

Past cap-and-trade programmes have tended to encourage polluters to adopt existing abatement technologies, but have generally had little effect on innovation. This paper presents new evidence that the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) may have bucked this trend and encouraged innovation rather than adoption.
