Capacity development

CAPaBLE, our scientific capacity development programme, aims to enhance the capacities of scientists, policymakers and practitioners to assess global change issues, and explore options to resolve the issues towards achieving sustainability. Through CAPaBLE, we support activities that enhance capacities at the individual, organizational and systemic levels.

Science-policy linkages

One of our goals is to strengthen the interactions among scientists and policymakers.
