Call for nominations for authors, review editors and fellows to contribute to the drafting of the 7th edition of the Global Environment Outlook (GEO-7)

Nominate experts (or self-nominate) by 5 January 2023

In accordance with the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA) Resolution 5/3 entitled “Future of the Global Environment Outlook” the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has initiated the preparation of the seventh edition of the Global Environment Outlook (GEO-7) assessment and its accompanying Summary for Policymakers to be launched at UNEA-7. The scope and annotated outline of GEO-7 were adopted by Members States, stakeholders and experts in October 2022.

In the frame of the GEO-7, UNEP is seeking nominations of experts to act as authors, review editors or fellows – with a broad range of expertise ranging from natural sciences to policy, economics and social sciences, as well as expertise in outlooks and scenarios – to work closely with the co-chairs of the assessment and the GEO Secretariat to ensure a solutions-focused, policy relevant and scientifically credible GEO-7 is produced by 2026.

For further information on the terms of references for each position and requirements, please read the nomination letter.

👉 If you are interested to be nominated by the International Science Council to become a GEO-7 author, review-editor or fellow, please complete the online form below by 5 January 2023.

👉 If you are interested to become a collaborating centre to provide support to the GEO-7 please submit your interest here by 15 January 2023.

Please consider sharing this call widely with your members and wider networks and encourage nominations of relevant experts. Young Academies are particularly encouraged to share the call with their members since selected fellows of the GEO-7 will benefit from an 11-week training course on global science to policy.
