This address was presented by Roland J. Fuchs, Director of the International
START Secretariat, to the United Nations Commission on Sustainable
Development. It explains that the focus of the START program is to provide
"the scientific capabilities and infrastructures required to enable scientists
from developing countries to participate fully in all aspects of global change
research, assessment and policy development." START would do this by
establishing 13 regional networks and providing research and training
workshops.
