The Fifth Strategic Plan outlines the rationale, vision, mission and values of APN, as well as specific goals and supporting mechanisms over the four-year period between and Through the competitive Collaborative Regional Research Programme CRRP , we promote regional research that has potential to improve our understanding of global change and its implications while contributing to the sound scientific basis for policymaking in areas affected by global change. CAPaBLE, our scientific capacity development programme, aims to enhance the capacities of scientists, policymakers and practitioners to assess global change issues, and explore options to resolve the issues towards achieving sustainability. One of our goals is to strengthen the interactions among scientists and policymakers. To this end, we work with governments, project teams and international partner organizations to develop policy-relevant knowledge products and to create empowering environments conducive to enhancing science-policy interactions. APN is an intergovernmental network of 22 countries working towards an Asia-Pacific region that is successfully addressing the challenges of global change and sustainability. About us.
The global environment surrounding the science, technology and innovation STI system is undergoing enormous changes. The world's major countries are investing heavily in STI, and STI looks set to become a major driving force in global development. The accelerating pace of digitalization and leap-frog development has led to the rise of emerging economies, especially in Asia, and rapid changes in the distribution of wealth and power both regionally and globally. NSF As the dramatic increase in the number of high impact papers shows, the region has become a center of global STI progress, with significant political, economic, and social impacts.
