A true friend of international science and scientific endeavour.

The ISC is saddened to hear of the sudden passing of Bob Scholes, a true friend of international science and scientific endeavour. Bob was chair of the IPBES land degradation assessment and had a key role in the global biodiversity assessment. He also was involved in the Program on Ecosystem Change and Society (PECS), a stand alone programme of ICSU (one of ISC’s predecessor organizations) and for which is now under the auspices of Future Earth. Bob was also involved in the ISC’s Global Forum of Funders programme.

We unite with others, such as the NRF, IPCC, and IPBES, in our sadness of Bob Sholes’ passing, and send our deepest condolences to Mary Scholes, his family, colleagues and friends.
