IUPAC as ANAO
Following its creation and restructuring undertaken last year, the
Society of Albanian Chemists (SAC), is the latest Associate National
Adhering Organization (ANAO) to have joined IUPAC. SAC is also a member
of the Federation of European Chemical Societies and an Associate Member
of EURACHEM. Through all these memberships, Albanian scientists intend
to actively participate in as many organized meetings, conferences and
workshops as possible, in order to contribute more directly to their
success. SAC is an ambitious society, with a growing desire for contemporary
knowledge and modern experience.
The Society of Albanian Chemists is an active participant to associations
and regional conferences such as the Balkan Environmental Association
(BENA) and the International Conferences of the South-East Countries
Societies of Chemists. Their activities includes:
- The study and identification of common or special environmental
problems in Albania and suggestion of possible courses of action together
with their economic effects.
- The integration of the common efforts of scientists, specialists,
educators and industrial enterprises for the environment and its sustainable
development between Albania, Balkan countries, European Union and
Generally, the state of the Albanian environment is poor, in contrast
to the natural richness. Some important possible causes and triggers
are a history of isolation, the legacy of central planning, level of
production and price controls, transition economy, low income levels,
high unemployment, weak institutions, and under-managed private sector.
In joining IUPAC, the Society hopes to learn from other member Organizations,
share national and regional problems and experiences, and participate
in the global debate on pure and applied chemistry in the 21st century.
