In 2012 the UN General Assembly proclaimed it the International Year of Crystallography.UNESCO, the only UN organization with a mandate covering basic sciences, was charged with coordinating related events in cooperation with International Union of Crystallography (IUCr), to highlight the continuing importance of the science and its role in addressing post 2015 development issues such as food security, safe drinking water, health care, sustainable energy and environmental remediation.”Crystallography also has an important place as we work for inclusive sustainable development policies that are good for people and the planet,” Mr.
