IAP Governance

Strategic Plan

IAP has produced three Strategic Plans in recent years. Building on the first two Plans, IAP reaffirms its vision and mission statements and will now build on and consolidate its achievements and create new opportunities under six strategic priorities during the period 2013-2015, namely:

I. Positioning IAP and IAP members as recognized and independent providers of high quality global science advice

II. Championing science education

III. Promoting accurate and effective science communication

IV. Strengthening existing academies and establishing new ones

V. Strengthening IAP operation and fund-raising strategy

VI. Strengthening partnership with other organizations.
