A select group of scientists from Africa were also present, but their status was merely that of invited guests to a party. In public, few of the African delegates questioned this reversal of roles, perhaps not wanting to offend their hosts and risk cutting off future funding prospects. In private, however, they were more critical.
Mugabe said that Africa is changing because Africans want to change, and that change will take place with or without international aid. Mugabe is right. Multiparty government is at last taking root in Africa. It is early days still, but the leaders of Nigeria, South Africa and Ethiopia are showing a willingness to turn their countries around.
African countries see the EU as a model for their own African Union, and under NEPAD they have also agreed to evaluate each other's performance in an effort to expose corruption. In the scientific community, a new generation of able and confident leaders is coming forward, despite the brain drain. Indigenous investment is taking place, too. Kenya is hosting several initiatives to boost agricultural research. Mozambique and Tanzania are showing that centres of excellence in healthcare research can be set up and run in a resource-scarce environment.
Africa is clearly on the move. But so far it seems that aid donors in rich countries are a little confused as to how they should respond. This may be partly because, as they admit, they are historically used to telling people in Africa what is best for them, and then complaining when their plans go awry.
Aid agencies are now encountering a different generation of Africans and must learn to change gear. They should empower many more Africans with the confidence to chart their own futures. And they must have the confidence themselves to trust the judgement of those who already have a clear idea of what they want.
