International Geosphere Biosphere Program IGBP httpwwwigbpkvasecgibinphp framesetphp

IGBP's mission is to deliver scientific knowledge to help human societies develop in harmony with Earth's environment. The goals are to describe and understand interactive physical, chemical, and biological processes that regulate the total Earth system, the unique environment that it provides for life, the changes that occur in this system, and the manner in which they are influenced by human actions.

IGBP is an international scientific research program built on interdisciplinarity, networking, and integration, and focuses its work in areas where an international approach is the best or the only way to provide an answer. IGBP works closely with IHDP, WCRP, and DIVERSITAS, the four international global environmental change programs sponsored by ICSU.
