Report of Programme Commission II (Natural Sciences).
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France). General Conference.
As the first part of the report of the Programme Commission II, a summary of discussions on plans for natural sciences and their applications is presented in this document. The two agenda items are: (1) detailed consideration of the 1973-74 draft program and budget and of the 1973-78 draft medium-term outline, and (2) desirability of adopting an international instrument on the status of scientific research workers. Besides the administrative aspects, the topics concentrate on science policy, promotion of scientific and technological research and higher education, environmental sciences, natural resources, and activities of the field science offices. The areas covered in environmental sciences include ecology, earth sciences, hydrology, and oceanography; and scientific and technological information is the main concern in discussions on scientific cooperation. The report of the working party on priorities for consideration by the commission is also discussed in detail with a copy included as an appendix. (CC)
