J.L. Lions, President of IMU
This is the second issue of the Newsletter for WMY 2 000. It is specially
devoted to developing countries, in connection with the third scope of the
Declaration of Rio de Janeiro.
The Newsletter Number 1 has been widely disseminated thanks to the efforts of all the National Committees for IMU, of international organizations such as ICTP, AMU, EMS, AMS and others, and local and individual initiatives.
Many of you have shown interest in its proposals ; ideas are circulating, suggestions are on the way and even constructive criticisms have been made. We thank you for your help and cooperation.
Some initiatives are published in this issue. We shall report on many others in Number 3, which is scheduled at the end of this year, after the International congress of Mathematicians in Zürich.
