Science, Technology, and American Diplomacy 1985. Sixth Annual Report Submitted to the Congress by the President Pursuant to Section 503(b) of Title V of Public Law 95-426. Serial E.
Department of State, Washington, DC.
The Reagan administration's annual report to the Congress on international activities in the fields of science and technology (S&T) for fiscal year 1984 consists of three parts. The two chapters in part I (S&T in American diplomacy) examine S&T in American foreign policy and resources necessary for successful diplomacy. The two chapters in part II (comprehensive S&T programs) discuss S&T in multilateral organizations and bilateral S&T programs. Part III (specialized S&T programs), which comprises the bulk of the report, consists of 11 chapters dealing with: agriculture in international S&T cooperation; civil space program; energy; environment, natural resources, and population; health; oceans and polar affairs; telecommunications; transportation; defense; S&T for development; and basic science and engineering. These chapters generally give details on the foreign S&T activities of relevant federal agencies, on activities mandated by various treaty obligations, and, in some instances, on bilateral activities. An index which provides cross-references by country, region, and international organization is included. Also included in an appendix are Congressional Research Service comments (prepared by Genevieve J. Knezo) on the report. The report's organization and contents, funding, evaluation, S&T benefits, and implications for foreign policy are briefly considered. (JN)
