Strategic Plans

Academies of sciences have their origin in the recognition that science and technology have a pivotal role to play in improving the social and economic life of nations. Academies play a critical role as a strong public voice for the promotion of both scientific excellence and science-based development. They shoulder the primary responsibility of demonstrating that a strong scientific base strengthens nations by enabling citizens to address critical economic, environmental, and social issues in systematic and effective ways, thereby improving the quality of life of its citizens.
