About the Report
The Strategic Plan builds on the successes and lessons learned from the past, and seeks to anticipate and address some of the major challenges for the future. It defines the operating space for ICSU during the next six-year period and at the same time leaves room for new ideas and areas to be nurtured and developed. The 51-page Plan is the result of an extensive consultation and planning process among the ICSU membership, headed by the ICSU Committee on Scientific Planning and Review (CSPR). It includes a summary of achievements – including the completion and launching of new global initiatives – during the period 2006-2011.
