About our Research Centres

The Earth System Governance Project strongly relies on a broad network that reflects the interdisciplinary, international, and multi-scale challenge of global environmental governance. The project is therefore strategically growing regionally through its research centres. Research Centres are a key academic and institutional mechanism by which the project’s work is implemented. These Centres in Africa, Asia, Australia, the Americas and Europe are research hubs that support the implementation of specific parts of the Earth System Governance Science and Implementation Plan and act as focal points for earth system governance research in their geographical and thematic area. In addition, strong networks of earth system governance research exist in many countries and regions in addition to or in lieu of a Research Centre. Research Centres have, or potentially will (co-) host the annual Conference on Earth System Governance, and an emerging role of the Research Centres is in teaching earth system governance.
