The Science and Technology
Alliance for Global Sustainability,
“the Alliance”, is an informal international
partnership that is committed to making full use of science and technology to inform equitable, sustainable solutions to the most pressing issues currently confronting humankind. Its members envision a sustainable world where decision-making is informed by the best available scientific evidence and knowledge. By working together, the Alliance members will fulfill this mission by promoting interdisciplinary research and facilitating partnerships between the scientific community, political bodies, business sector and civil society.
The flagship initiative of the Alliance is Future Earth, a 10-year programme of research for global sustainability. This initiative will bring together and build on the strengths of existing international global environmental change programmes and incorporate the outcomes of recent visioning and agenda-setting processes led by the Alliance members. The initiative also responds to the call to the scientific community to support the implementation of the outcomes of the 2012 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, Rio+20.
