ICSU GeoUnions launch new website
The GeoUnions, a network of representatives of the international scientific unions of the International Council for Science (ICSU) dealing with Earth and space sciences, have established a new web presence.
The network’s aim is to promote sciences worldwide, to communicate and to coordinate scientific activities of individual unions. Current key areas of the network’s activities are:
- Extreme Natural Hazards and Societal Implications (ENHANS)
- The Value of Geo-Information for Disaster and Risk Management (VALID)
- International Year of Global Understanding (IYGU)
- International Year of Deltas (IYD)
The GeoUnions established a Steering Committee in 2004 for the above activities, and to speak on behalf of GeoUnions members to the ICSU Executive Board, ICSU Members and its interdisciplinary bodies and at the international level. The Steering Committee of GeoUnions meets normally a day before of ICSU General Assemblies and Scientific Unions Meetings of ICSU.
Their new website can be found at www.icsu-geounions.org.
