Linking with Global Initiatives
Aiming to link with global stakeholders in various areas, such as climate, coastal and EO research, Co-ReSyF has so far established links with Future Earth Coasts (FEC), EurOcean, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), Group on Earth Observations (GEO) Blue Planet, World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) World Climate Research Programme (WCRP), and the NOAA Center for Satellite Applications and Research (STAR).
Future Earth Coasts (FEC) is a ‘community’ of organisations, scientists and practitioners from all disciplines of science, engineering, the humanities and law, whose work addresses global environmental change, and contributes to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and social learning. FEC provides a platform for networking and delivering ‘added value’ to the outputs of our community to explore and understand the drivers and social-environmental impacts of global environmental change in coastal zones. With a vision to support transformation to a sustainable and resilient future for society and nature on the coast by facilitating innovative, integrated and impactful science, FEC aims to: (a) strengthen global partnerships between researchers, funders and users of research, (b) enable integrated research on grand challenges and transformations to sustainability, and (c) communicate science-to-society and society-to-science.
EurOcean- the European Centre for information on Marine Science and Technology is an independent scientific non-governmental organisation, with 15 members comprising leading European marine research, funding and outreach organisations. EurOcean maintains significant databases of marine relevant information. It is a key source of information on marine research infrastructures (over 900 facilities documented in its RID – Research Infrastructures Database) and on EU and nationally funded marine research projects and their outputs (over 6000 projects listed in its Marine Knowledge Gate). It is also active in ocean public outreach and awareness activities and is involved in a number of H2020 projects.
Sponsored by the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO), Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO (IOC-UNESCO) and International Council for Science (ICSU), the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) facilitates analysis and prediction of Earth system change for use in a range of practical applications of direct relevance, benefit and value to society. WCRP aims to determine (a) the predictability of climate and (b) the effect of human activities on climate.
The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) is the federal government agency for scientific research in Australia. Its chief role is to improve the economic and social performance of industry, for the benefit of the community. CSIRO works with leading organisations around the world.
