|Journal of the Network of African Countries on Local Building Materials and Technologies - Volume 3, Number 1 (HABITAT, 1994, 44 p.)|
The Network of African Countries on Local Building Materials and Technologies aims at strengthening local technological capacity through facilitating information flow, regional cooperation and the transfer of appropriate technologies in low-cost and innovative building materials sectors in African countries.
The Journal of the Network, currently published biannually, aims to provide a channel of information that could be used by professionals, technicians, researchers, scientists as well as policy and decision makers. It is a medium for information exchange and a facilitator for acquisition of suitable technologies and know-how.
Efforts are made to compile, process and publish articles and technical papers originated mainly in the African region, however, as deemed appropriate and subject to availability, research findings and technological information from countries outside the African region are also included to stimulate inter-regional cooperation as well.
