Resolution No.8 (2003): Developing countries in equatorial and low-latitude research

IAGA, considering the importance of atmospheric and ionospheric processes at equatorial and low latitudes in the context of global studies of Sun-Earth relationships, and recognising that new observational facilities have become operational in many developing countries, recommends that research using these facilities and ground-based, ocean-based, and space-based instruments be carried out in close collaboration with scientists in the developing countries so as to promote their participation and technology transfer.
