About the ISC
The Council convenes the scientific expertise and resources needed to lead on catalyzing, incubating and coordinating impactful international action on issues of major scientific and public importance. The Council’s Action Plan forms a practical framework for the ISC’s work until the end of 2024, and to work towards our vision of science as a global public good.
The ISC works at the intersection of science and policy, particularly at the UN level, to ensure that science is integrated into international policy development and that relevant policies take into account both scientific knowledge and the needs of science.
Global Knowledge Dialogue
The Global Knowledge Dialogue is a series of events the ISC is holding through the various regions of the world, which started in Africa at the World Science Forum in 2022. The GKD for Latin America and the Caribbean will be held on the margins of the SRI congress on Wednesday, 28 June 2023.
