The 2021 Earth System Governance Annual Report is available to view online.
Within, you will find a letter from the Scientific Steering Committee, as well as some key activities and achievements of the network last year. Four new taskforces were formed in 2021, as well as one new working group. The network grew in membership to over 450 scholars, including 56 new research fellows from 16 countries. An overview of the research output is also available whereby you can explore the state of earth system governance research in 2021, and the various journals and types of publications that are written.
The Earth System Governance Project seeks to mobilise and advance scholarship at the interface between global environmental change and governance. We do this by expanding the global mobilization of earth system governance researchers, by stimulating and facilitating research collaborations as well as seeking to inform and advise at the science-policy interface.
