SCAR XXX IP11: SCAR’s Relations with Partners

Information Paper 11
Agenda Item: 8.6
Posted/Revised: May 1
Person Responsible: Summerhayes

Background

As specified in the SCAR Strategic Plan, SCAR’s will foster the development of partnerships with global research organisations having an Antarctic interest, to reinforce the value of the efforts of both, and to avoid duplication.

In particular, SCAR’s links with ICSU and its subsidiary and related scientific bodies continue to increase.

SCAR continues to work closely with ICSU as a member of the ICSU-WMO Joint Committee for the IPY, which steers the IPY process (SCAR’s President and Executive Director are both members of the JC, along wit past SCAR Vice President Jeronimo Lopez-Martinez, and the Chair of the SCAR/SCOR Oceanography Expert Group, Eberhard Fahrbach).

Details of the science carried out by the programmes listed below can be found in the Annual Report ( pdf IP01 (339 KB) ):
