Planet under Pressure: Conference Declaration

The Planet under Pressure Conference, held on 26-29 March 2012 in London, UK, was jointly organised by the Global Research Programmes including WCRP.

The Conference Declaration summarizes present day challenges and proposes solutions to address these challenges such as the creation of a new contract between science and society:

"Research plays a significant role in monitoring change, determining thresholds, developing new technologies and processes, and providing solutions. The international global-change research community proposes a new contract between science and society in recognition that science must inform policy to make more wise and timely decisions and that innovation should be informed by diverse local needs and conditions."
