Findings and purposes
(a) FindingsThe Congress makes the following findings:
Pooling of international resources and scientific capabilities will be essential to a successful international global change program.
While international scientific planning is already underway, there is currently no comprehensive intergovernmental mechanism for planning, coordinating, or implementing research to understand global change and to mitigate possible adverse effects.
An international global change research program will be important in building future consensus on methods for reducing global environmental degradation.
(b) PurposesThe purposes of this subchapter are to—
promote international, intergovernmental cooperation on global change research;
involve scientists and policymakers from developing nations in such cooperative global change research programs; and
