22nd Pacific Science Congress – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Asia Pacific in the 21st Century: Meeting the Challenge of Global Change

The Congress provided an interdisciplinary platform for scientists from the region to assess and prioritize issues requiring scientific research, bring together scientists from more remote states, catalyze international and cross-disciplinary collaboration, and to announce and establish new research initiatives. The Pacific Science Association (PSA) focused on those countries bordering the Pacific Ocean and the islands of the Pacific basin. IRDR’s representatives Gordon McBean and Jane Rovins convened two sessions together followed by an introduction of IRDR from McBean and a presentation from Rovins.
