2nd Future Earth-GEC projects meeting

A three-day Future Earth meeting brought together the projects of the Global Environmental Change programmes, DIVERSITAS, IGBP, IHDP & WCRP, on 20-22 January in Washington DC, USA.

All DIVERSITAS projects were represented, and the SC-DIVERSITAS was represented by M Lonsdale and A-H Prieur-Richard.

The first two days of the meeting focused on identifying Future Earth’s medium-term research priorities, and the development of proposals for a suite of “Fast Track Initiatives” (FTI). Future Earth will fund possibly 8-10 FTIs, each with a budget of up to $100,000. More information and deadlines should be available on the Future Earth website shortly. See here. 

The third day of the meeting focussed on topics related to International Project Offices. Participants addressed three main themes in relation to the transition towards Future Earth: 1) management and practicalities related to project coordination, 2) communication accross projects; and 3) regional nodes and approaches.
