History

as a result of the 1990 White House Conference on Science and Economics Research Related to Global Change, at which the then US President Bush invited countries of the world to join the US in creating 3 regional networks for North-South scientific cooperation at the intergovernmental level to deal with global environmental change research. Discussions progressed in 3 zones: Europe and Africa; North and South America; Asia-Pacific Region. Formally launched during the 1st Intergovernmental Meeting (IGM) and Scientific Planning Group (SPG) Meeting, Chiang Mai (Thailand), 1996.

Aims

Enable investigations of changes in the Earth's life support systems and their implications for sustainable development in the Asia-Pacific region by supporting activities that aim to: identify, explain and predict changes in the context of both natural and anthropogenic forcing; assess potential regional and global vulnerability of natural and human systems; contribute, from the science perspective, to the development of policy options for appropriate responses to global change that will also contribute to sustainable development.
