International Research Network for Low Carbon Societies (LCS-RNet)
Founded 2009, on the initiative of Japan as chair of the G8 in 2008, and upon agreement of the G8 countries. The G8 Environmental Ministers Meeting, Apr 2009, Syracuse (Italy), requested the LCS-RNet to report back its outcomes periodically, so knowledge from the network will be reflected at the very top level in environmental policies worldwide. Results have been delivered to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and other related international institutions.
As a network established between nations: share scientific knowledge needed to create low-carbon societies; provide an opportunity for researchers and policymakers to converse with each other by supporting timely policy implementation directly linking research and policy.
