European Alliance community
The national committees of the European Alliance constitute an extensive network of experts and researchers working with global change issues in international cooperation. Various scientific societies, science academies, universities and specialized research institutes are represented by the national committees. The national committees vary in their structure, funding and representation.
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.
