Academies acting in concert
  • Global coordination
    The InterAcademy Panel is encouraged to coordinate with other organizations, such as the Academy of Sciences for the Developing World (TWAS),, the Third World Organization for Women in Science (TWOWS), and UN organizations, such as UNESCO and UNCSTD Gender Advisory Board, for implementation of the recommendations in this report. In particular, the InterAcademy Panel might want to work with UNESCO in two ways: establishing global indicators and the standardized compilation of sex-disaggregated data; and developing a global strategy to establish gender equity throughout the S&T community.
  •  Dissemination
     The Advisory Panel recommends that the InterAcademy Panel make use of various means of communication, such as S&T-friendly radio and television programming, for increasing the public understanding of science, with particular focus on girls and women. The Advisory Panel also requests that the InterAcademy Panel establish a website for women in science and engineering. In addition to providing an important bridge to the many other related sites on the Internet, the InterAcademy Panel website will help share information about varied gender-equity programmes around the world. For example, the large amount of material reviewed in the preparation of this report should be made accessible for academies and the wider women-for-S&T community.
