The Centre for Science and Technology of the Non-Aligned and Other Developing Countries (NAM S&T Centre) is an inter-governmental organisation with a membership of 47 countries spread over Asia, Africa, Middle East and Latin America. Besides this, 11 S&T agencies and academic / research institutions of Bolivia, Brazil, India, Nigeria and Turkey are the members of the S&T-Industry Network of the Centre. The Centre was set up in 1989 to promote South-South cooperation through mutually beneficial partnerships among scientists and technologists and scientific organisations in developing countries. It implements a variety of programmes including international workshops, meetings, roundtables, training courses and collaborative projects and brings out scientific publications, including a quarterly Newsletter. It is also implementing 8 Fellowship schemes, namely, Joint NAM S&T Centre – ZMT Bremen Fellowship; Joint NAM S&T Centre – ICCBS Fellowship; Joint NAM S&T Centre – DST (South Africa) Training Fellowship on Minerals Processing & Beneficiation; NAM S&T Centre – U2ACN2 Research Associateship in Nanosciences & Nanotechnology; Joint CSIR / CFTRI (Diamond Jubilee) – NAM S&T Centre Fellowship; NAM S&T Centre Research Fellowship; NAM S&T Centre – ACENTDFB Fellowship in Neglected Tropical Diseases and Forensic Biotechnology; NAM S&T Centre - ASRT, Egypt Fellowship Programme. These activities provide, among others, the opportunity for scientist-to-scientist contact and interaction, training and expert assistance, familiarising the scientific community on the latest developments and techniques in the subject areas, and identification of technologies for transfer between member countries. The Centre has so far brought out 79 publications and has organised 113 international workshops and training programmes.

Industrial Biotechnology is the application of biotechnology to industrial processes leading to synthesizing and creating innovative products in a sustainable manner. It is one of the most promising new approaches to pollution prevention, resource conservation, cost reduction and creation of new markets while protecting the environment. Most of the countries, including those with emerging economies, acknowledge the role being played by this upcoming area in the conversion of natural resources into value added products of benefit to humans. For example, Industrial Biotechnology can be a game changer in the minerals extraction, metal recovery and entire process chain by providing environmentally friendly higher productivity and yields.
In order to gather collective wisdom for use by all the stake holders to accelerate the pace of industrial development and intensely deliberate on the issues concerning potential of industrial biotechnology and the strategies for its exploitation and application across a variety of areas in the developing countries, the NAM S&T Centre in partnership with the Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development, Zimbabwe and the National Biotechnology Authority (NBA) of Zimbabwe organised the 2nd Training Workshop on ‘Industrial Biotechnology: Driving Value Addition and Beneficiation’ during 22-24 August 2017 in Harare which brought various stake holders, viz. scientists, experts and professionals engaged in R&D, policy making and implementation to a common platform for improving their skills and sharing views and experiences in various aspects of Industrial Biotechnology.
This book comprises 21 chapters from the researchers and professionals of 14 countries. The chapters in this book have been categorised in two sections, namely, Strategic Development Programs and Specific Biotechnology Efforts
The book is expected to be of great value to the policy experts and technology service providers, business, civil societies and multi-lateral agencies amongst developing countries with the objective of harnessing the benefits of promising Industrial Biotechnology.
