Mission

Formerly known as the International Council of Scientific Unions, ICSU is a non-governmental organization, founded in 1931, to bring together natural scientists in international scientific endeavour. It comprises 98 multidisciplinary national scientific members (scientific research councils or science academies) and 26 international, single discipline Scientific Unions to provide a wide spectrum of scientific expertise enabling members to address international, interdisciplinary issues which none could handle alone.

Policies and Programmes in DRR

The International Polar Year is a large scientific programme focused on the Arctic and the Antarctic from March 2007 to March 2009.

IPY, organized through the International Council for Science (ICSU) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), is actually the fourth polar year, following those in 1882-3, 1932-3, and 1957-8. In order to have full and equal coverage of both the Arctic and the Antarctic, IPY 2007-8 covers two full annual cycles from March 2007 to March 2009 and will involve over 200 projects, with thousands of scientists from over 60 nations examining a wide range of physical, biological and social research topics. It is also an unprecedented opportunity to demonstrate, follow, and get involved with, cutting edge science in real-time.
