Resolution No.1 (1999): IGY + 50 collaboration

IAGA, considering the scientific success of the International Geophysical Year (IGY) 1957/8 and the long term benefits of the actions taken at that time, and recognising that these benefits resulted from international co-operation and co-ordination, and noting that many current scientific programmes are directed towards studies of the physics and dynamics of the solar-terrestrial and solar-planetary systems, recommends that national and international agencies support efforts and initiatives to develop collaborative programmes in these areas during the period 2003-2008 to mark the 50th anniversary of the IGY and to act as a springboard for future research.
