THE AIM OF THE NETWORK AND ITS JOURNAL
The Network of African Countries on Local Building Materials and Technologies has the objective of strengthening local technological capacity through facilitating information flow, regional co-operation and transfer of appropriate technologies in low-cost and innovative building materials sector in African countries.
The Journal of the Network, currently published biannually, aims to provide a channel for information that is available and could be of use by professionals, technicians, researchers, scientists as well as policy and decision makers. It is a medium for information exchange and facilitator for acquisition of suitable technologies and know-how by needy countries.
Efforts are made to compile, process and publish articles and technical papers originated, mainly, in 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 interregional cooperation as well.
