SCAR XXXVI Delegates Meeting, Online, 16-25 March 2021
SCAR XXXVI Paper 11: Application of the Czech Republic for Full Membership
Agenda Item: 6.2
Person Responsible: Daniel Nývlt
Author: Daniel Nývlt
This paper is an application by the Czech Republic for Full Membership of SCAR as an Initial Stage Program. The letter of application and an annex on scientific work undertaken and to be continued by the Czech Republic are provided. The Czech Republic adopted the Protocol on Environmental Protection to the Antarctic Treaty in 2004, and became a consultative party to the Antarctic Treaty in 2014 (acknowledging the prior status of Czechoslovakia since 1962).
The Delegates consider the application of the Czech Republic for Full Membership of SCAR.
Initial Stage Membership fees are $12,400, which would represent an additional annual positive contribution to SCAR's budget, above the Associate Member Fees currently contributed by the Czech Republic.
