Future Earth Coast is holding its annual SSC meeting in Taipei, Taiwan to finalise the 2016-2026 Science Plan and Implementation Strategy.
The meeting will be hosted by the Global Research Centre in the College of Science at the National Taiwan University and will bring together over 20 of the worlds leading scientists and researchers to work on the next Science Plan for this Future Earth Core project. Future Earth Coasts has the ambition to be at the centre of a new transdisciplinary approach to determining transformative pathways for sustainable practices at the world’s coastal zones. To do this it wishes to chart a new landscape and method for doing research and how the outcomes of research are used to bridge the science-policy interface. At the same time the project wishes to maintain, evolve and build upon the legacy of 26 years of research carried out under the LOICZ project to inform and nourish the new direction of Future Earth Coasts.
