The European Alliance national committees represent the four global change research programs of ICSU: IHDP - International Human Dimensions Programme, IGBP - International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme, DIVERSITAS - an integrated programme of biodiversity science and WCRP - World Climate Research Programme.  Currently, three of these programs, IGBP, IHDP and DIVERSITAS, are in a transition period and they will merge into the new global change research initiative Future Earth. Accordingly, many of the European Alliance national committees have established themselves or are in a process to establish themselves as integrated Future Earth national committees. 

To find out more about Future Earth and other global change research programs and their core research projects, see the list on the the right side of this page.
