This GYA Working Group, which started as an Incubator group in January 2018, will prepare a policy paper on how science diplomacy can benefit the three countries, and suggest a mechanism to enable the process of discussion. The core group will eventually work in collaboration with the young academies of the three nations to identify key issues and initiate the process of discussion that would help to address these issues for the common benefit of the nations.
Science Diplomacy in South Asia workshop
The group is organising an online workshop on Science Diplomacy in South Asia in November and December 2020, for participants from eight South Asian countries (GYA members, and non-members may apply). The workshop will consist of four 3-hour online sessions on 21 November, 28 November, 5 December and 12 December 2020 (13-16 hrs UTC each).
