Future Earth initiatives take on high-impact, transdisciplinary, sustainability research topics, steer research funding, and bring sound science to global policy, business and public discourse.

Earth Targets Initiatives

More businesses, cities, and governments want to work to develop local and global targets that help maintain Earth systems like land, water, and biodiversity. Future Earth is providing the much-needed scientific guidance behind the target-setting process, through two initiatives: Science for Earth Targets and the Earth Commission.

Funding Initiatives

Future Earth works with funders to shape joint research calls and grants for global sustainability.
