Independent review of ICSU
Concluding remarks from the report
The objective of ICSU is to promote S&T for the benefit of humanity. The major influence ICSU should have in the international arena is in setting the agenda for science that cannot be done by governments because of political or other related reasons. A good measure of ICSU's success, other than in establishing effective programs, should be the attraction of those who do not believe they need it. Looking back from the year 2020 to today, we should feel confident that humanity has indeed benefitted from science because of ICSU's interventions.
