Josep Canadell (Executive Director)

It is a Future Earth Global Research Project and a research partner of the World Climate Research Programme. It was formed to collaborate with the international scientific community to develop a common and mutually agreed-upon knowledge base to support policy debate and action to slow and eventually stop the increase of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. The overwhelming realization that anthropogenic climate change is a reality has focused the attention of the scientific community, policymakers, and the general public on rising levels of greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), and nitrous oxide (N2O).

The GCP establishes an internationally consistent framework for coordinating and integrating regional and global research on carbon cycle science, including natural and social sciences, to improve understanding and management of the carbon-climate-human system.
