Future Earth: Research Program for Global Sustainability
Will the present World Research Programs WCRP, IGBP, IHDP, DIVERSITAS and ESSC be replaced?
Future Earth is a new 10-year initiative which aims to deliver knowledge to enable societies to meet their sustainable development goals in the coming decades. "Future Earth" will replace the existing World Programs IGBP, IHDP, Diversitas and ESSP. WCRP will become a partner. The core projects may be adopted, if they can contribute to the new vision.
The goals of the Initiative are:
Starting in June 2011, a Transition Team will guide the design phase and the early implementation of the Initiative until a new governing body is appointed by the end of 2012. The Initiative will be announced in two stages in 2012- at the Planet Under Pressure conference in March and the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) in June.
