Usains Holding Sdn. Bhd. The creation of the International Science, Technology and Innovation, Centre for South-South Cooperation under the auspices of UNESCO (ISTIC) is a follow up of the Doha Plan of Action which has been adopted by the head of States and Government of the Group of 77 and China, during the meeting in Doha, Qatar, from 12-16 June 2005 on the occasion of the Second South Summit of the Group of 77. The Summit urged UNESCO to develop and implement a programme for South-South cooperation in science and technology with the objective of facilitating the integration of a developmental approach into national science and technology and innovation policies, capacity building in science and technology through providing policy advice and exchange of experience and best practices, and creating a problem solving network of centres of excellence in developing countries as well as supporting the exchange of students, researchers, scientists and technologists among developing countries. ISTIC will act as an international platform for South-South cooperation in science, technology and innovation and make use of the network of the G77 plus China and the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC). The overall goal of ISTIC is to increase the capacity for management of science, technology and innovation throughout developing countries. ISTIC Secretariat is hosted by the Academy of Sciences Malaysia (ASM) for five years before making ISTIC an autonomous organization. Details on ISTIC is available at www.istic-unesco.org UNESCO was founded on 16 November 1945. UNESCO functions as a laboratory of ideas and a standard-setter to forge universal agreements on emerging ethical issues. The Organization also serves as a clearinghouse for the dissemination and sharing of information and knowledge while helping Member States to build their human and institutional capacities in diverse fields. In short, UNESCO promotes international co-operation among its 193 Member States and six Associate Members in the fields of education, science, culture and communication. UNESCO is working to create the conditions for genuine dialogue based upon respect for shared values and the dignity of each civilization and culture. This role is critical, particularly in the face of terrorism, which constitutes an attack against humanity. The world urgently requires global visions of sustainable development based upon observance of human rights, mutual respect and the alleviation of poverty, all of which lie at the heart of UNESCOs mission and activities.
