ESSP Transitions into "Future Earth"

The Earth System Science Partnership (ESSP) closed on 31 December 2012. Its projects and activities will transition into the new "Future Earth" programme over the next few years.

During this transition period, the four global environmental change research programmes (DIVERSITAS, IGBP, IHDP, WCRP) will continue close collaboration with each other. Furthermore, to ensure that there is no discontinuity during the transition phase into "Future Earth", each programme will take administrative responsibility for one of the Joint Projects with effect from 1st January 2013, on behalf of all four programmes. IGBP will foster GCP, DIVERSITAS the GWSP, IHDP the GECHH, and WCRP will foster MAIRS. ESSP will be represented by ICSU on CCAFS' Independent Science Panel. These projects and activities will therefore continue to be part of the four sponsor programmes and DIVERSITAS, IGBP, IHDP and WCRP will continue to collaborate with each other until "Future Earth" becomes operational.
