Abstract
Round Table discussions during CCMS Plenary Meetings have provided useful occasions to exchange views on common policy concerns. The use, development and control of technology has been at the forefront of past Round Table discussions, and indeed has been the basis of the pilot country studies aimed at sharing experience and providing guidance for dealing with pragmatic challenging technical problems facing our modern societies. Following up the most valuable discussions at previous Plenary Meetings on the preparation of environmental impact assessments, the enhancement of urban development, and the assessment of our pilot studies on energy problems, Coordinators and ad hoc groups have considered further CCMS attention might be devoted to questions concerning the development of suitable technology and public participation in the planning of technical innovation. This Round Table discussion highlights this serious preoccupation of the Committee.
