Objectives:

The Second multi-annual scientific support plan for a sustainable development policy - extended over the period 2001-2005 - is clearly linked, as appears from the title, to the first multi-annual scientific support plan, which ended in 2001.


The SPSD II maintains the general objectives of SPSD I, namely :

- to clarify the utmost complex problematic of sustainable development;

- to collect and interpret the scientific basic information, which can give direction to the preparation of a sustainable development policy and its execution;

- to formulate proposals and to elaborate instruments in order to set up, evaluate and direct a sustainable development policy.


Description:

This plan is mainly composed of two complementary parts :

- one part "Sustainable production and consumption patterns"
- one part "Global change, ecosystems and biodiversity"


The second part "Global change, ecosystems and biodiversity" addresses the global environmental issues relating to atmosphere and climate, to ecosystems and to biodiversity, as well as to the effects of the pressure of human activity. The research contributes to a better understanding - via field studies, observation and modelling on various scales - of the flows of water, energy and matter which are generated within and between the environmental compartments earth, sea and atmosphere, as well as the alteration of these flows.


The following three themes are more specifically studied :

1. Atmosphere and climate: including connected Antarctic research;

2. Marine ecosystems and biodiversity;

3. Terrestrial ecosystems and biodiversity: (including wetlands) of the temperate regions.


The following parts are treated within the themes mentioned above :
a. North Sea;
b. Antarctic;
c. Biodiversity.
