The ACB Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) is a group of recognised experts in the ASEAN region established to provide scientific guidance to various ACB initiatives. Since its establishment in 2008, the SAC has met seven times, from 2008 to 2019.
The SAC convenes meetings, subject to the availability of the means to do so, at least once a year, or more frequently as necessary. Thus, the Eighth Meeting of the SAC will be conducted back-to-back with the Seventh ASEAN Heritage Parks Conference in Indonesia. The members of the ACB SAC will also be invited to participate as Resource Persons for selected AHP 7 sessions.
The Eighth Meeting of the SAC is a side event of the AHP 7 and will be held on 31 October 2022. The Meeting generally aims to discuss enhancing the role of the ACB SAC towards advancing science-based decisions and policymaking in the ASEAN region.
