Archimag;fev2011, Issue 241, p38
The article discusses the ideas of Ismail Serageldin, head of the Alexandria Library, who believes that knowledge can be used to fight poverty and should be used accordingly. It argues that, on the one hand, poverty is caused by a lack of access to resources and therefore education can save lives, and secondly that science and technology need to invest more resources into combating hunger, such as the developments in biotechnology in producing more nutritious varieties of plant.
