Howard Alper
IANAS Co-chair Former President Hernan Chaimovich (Brazilian Academy of Sciences); Howard Alper (Royal Society of Canada); Harold Ramkissoon (The Caribbean Scientific Union); Juan Asenjo (Chilean Academy of Sciences); Michael Clegg (National Academy of Sciences); Maciej Nalecz (Director, Division of Basic and Engineering Sciences, UNESCO); Marcos Cortesão Barnsley Scheuenstuhl (IANAS - Brazilian Secretariat). The session was opened by Howard Alper, who welcomed the participants and thanked the Caribbean Scientific Union for kindly hosting the second meeting of the Steering Committee (SC) of IANAS. He expressed his satisfaction with the evolution of the current programmes (Science Education and Water) and recognized that much has been accomplished since the last meeting of the SC, held in Ottawa this past November. Howard Alper asked the members of the SC if all had read the report and if there were any corrections or addendums. With no comments, the minutes were approved. Howard Alper recognized the success of the programme, but stressed that there is a need to more clearly identify which actors would effectively engage this initiative. Howard Alper presented the second proposal for a new IANAS initiative. Howard Alper made a few comments on IANAS communication policy and there was a general agreement that it has been working fine.

IANAS Co-chair Former President Howard Alper (Royal Society of Canada); Hernan Chaimovich (Brazilian Academy of Sciences); Juan Asenjo (Chilean Academy of Sciences); Claudio Bifano (Academy of Physical, Mathematical and Natural Sciences of Venezuela); Michael Clegg (National Academy of Sciences); Octavio Paredes (Mexican Academy of Sciences); Josée Lalande (IANAS - Canadian Secretariat); Marcos Cortesão Barnsley Scheuenstuhl (IANAS - Brazilian Secretariat). Howard Alper opened the session thanking all those present for attending the meeting. He expressed his satisfaction at the progress the group has made since the organization got off the ground last May. He mentioned the important financial support received from the International Development Research Center (IDRC) and the InterAcademy Panel (IAP), pointing to the need of identifying new initiatives and programmes to be developed by IANAS in the near future.

Howard Alper
IANAS Co-chair Former President Hernan Chaimovich (co-chair, Brazilian Academy of Sciences); Howard Alper (co-chair, Royal Society of Canada); Claudio Bifano (Academy of Physical, Mathematical and Natural Sciences of Venezuela); Harold Ramkissoon (The Caribbean Scientific Union); Juan Asenjo (Chilean Academy of Sciences); Michael Clegg (National Academy of Sciences); José Galizia Tundisi (Water Programme co-chair); Marcos Cortesão Barnsley Scheuenstuhl (IANAS - Brazilian Secretariat); Avílio Antonio Franco (Secretary in Charge of the Research Institutes, Brazilian Ministry of Science and Technology); Ana Rita Pereira Alves (General Director of the Mamirauá Sustainable Development Institute). On behalf of the non-residents of Brazil, Howard Alper thanked the Brazilian Academy of Sciences and the MSDI for organizing the meeting in such a wonderful place. He stated that it was a unique and life-long dream to be at the heart of the Amazon jungle, especially at the Mamirauá Reserve, which operates as a living laboratory. He then addressed the audience remembering that IANAS has been operational only since 2004, notwithstanding the network has been extremely active, being highly recognized by many governments and organizations. From his point of view, the future is most promising for the network and the third meeting of the SC had the crucial task of orienting our next steps. Avilio Antonio Franco then spoke on behalf of the Brazilian government, thanking IANAS for having chosen Mamirauá as the venue for its SC meeting. He stressed that it is important for researchers from other countries to get to know the Mamirauá experience, which is a unique project in Brazil. Howard Alper was the next to share his views on the science education programme. He first thanked J. Asenjo for providing the SC with such a good overview on the programme. He then agreed with M. Cortesão's words, emphasizing that indeed IANAS had acted as a catalyst, stimulating the global evaluation process embraced by IAP. Howard Alper noted that each country experienced this growing issue in a different manner. Howard Alper agreed with J. Asenjo's words, stating that in Canada, as in other countries, education is province based. Howard Alper was the first to comment the presentation on the water programme. He congratulated J. Tundisi for his presentation and stated that it was excellent that J.T. could come to Mamirauá to describe to the SC his view of the programme. Before the Mamirauá meeting he had never had the opportunity to meet J. Tundisi and he was very happy that they had now met. Howard Alper indicated that we should question ourselves on how IANAS is contributing to the IAP water programme. Howard Alper was the last speaker to address the audience on this topic. He stated that the discussion had been very rich and interesting and that the issues raised were very challenging. He thanked J. Tundisi for his participation at the meeting and wished him success on the development of the programme.

Nevertheless, he emphasized that it was important for IANAS to approach other organizations to seek for additional funding.
