Future Earth: New global platform for sustainability research launched at Rio+20

An Alliance of partners comprising the International Council for Science (ICSU), the ISSC, the Belmont Forum, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the United Nations University (UNU), strongly supported by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), have launched a new 10-year international initiative to deliver solution oriented research for sustainability in partnership with society at the Forum on Science and Technology and Innovation for Sustainable Development, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Future Earth – research for global sustainability, will provide a cutting-edge platform to coordinate scientific research which is designed and produced in partnership with governments, business and, more broadly, society. Future Earth will bring together natural scientists, social scientists, engineers and the humanities with funders and policy makers to align research agendas, understand and anticipate environmental change, and develop innovative solutions.
