Second MA Board Meeting

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia was the site of the January 14 – 16, 2002 meeting of the MA Board. Hosted in part by the office of the Minister of Science, Technology and Environment, the second meeting of the MA Board marked the completion of the design phase of the MA. The Board reviewed the design and assessment procedures as submitted by the Assessment Panel, and with some modifications approved the “blueprint” for the assessment structure and focus. They also revised and approved the MA budget, workplan, institutional arrangements, and outreach strategy. The Board will next convene in 2003 to review the Conceptual Framework Report.
