Final Signatures for OAD New Coordinating Offices

The International Astronomical Union’s (IAU) Office of Astronomy for Development (OAD) has established new coordinating offices in Armenia, Colombia, Jordan, Nigeria and Portugal. Supporting the use of astronomy as a tool for development in specific regions and languages, the new partnerships form part of the IAU’s decadal strategic plan — which aims to realise the societal benefits of astronomy. The final signatures were received during a media event on Thursday 13 August 2015.
