Strategic Plan 2012-17
The process for developing the second ICSU Strategic Plan, 2012–2017, was initiated at the 29th General Assembly in October 2008, with the presentation of a briefing document to ICSU Members. ICSU's Committee on Scientific Planning and Review (CSPR) was charged with developing this plan, building on current strategic activities and other inputs, including:
- outcomes of consultations with ICSU Members in December 2008 and February 2011;
- the then ongoing Earth system visioning process;
- the ad hoc strategic review of ICSU’s role in science education; and
- reviews of the ICSU Regional Offices.
In addition, CSPR initiated a second foresight analysis that explored scenarios for the development of international science over the next 20 years and provided the longer-term view to complement the nearer-term view provided by the other inputs.
