Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL)

The Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) develops and uses mathematical models and computer simulations to improve understanding and prediction of the behavior of the atmosphere, the oceans, and climate. Since 1955 the GFDL has influenced the world's research on the modeling of global climate change and has played a significant role in the World Meteorological Organization, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change assessments, and the U. S. Climate Change Science Program. GFDL scientists focus on model-building relevant for society, such as hurricane research, prediction, and seasonal forecasting, and understanding global and regional climate change.

George Mason University Center for Climate Change Communication - 4C

The Center for Climate Change Communication ("4C") at George Mason University was created to conduct unbiased social science research that will facilitate public engagement in the decision making around climate change. The research center uses social science research methods - experiments, surveys, in-depth interviews and other methods - to find ways of effectively engaging the public and policy makers in the communication around climate change, and in considering and enacting solutions. The Center's mission is "to help government agencies, non-profit organizations, and companies apply the results of this research - so that collectively, we can stabilize our planet's life sustaining climate.

Global Invasive Species Programme

The Global Invasive Species Programme is an international partnership dedicated to tackling the global threat of invasive species. Established in response to the first international meeting on invasive alien species held in Trondheim, Norway (1996), GISP's mission is to conserve biodiversity and sustain livelihoods by minimizing the spread and impact of invasive species. GISP provides support to the implementation of Article 8(h) of the Convention on Biological Diversity and has contributed extensively to the knowledge and awareness of invasive species through the development of a range pf products and publications including the Global Strategy on Invasive Alien Species and Invasive Alien Species: A Toolkit of Best Prevention and Management Practices.
