Prof. JIA Gensuo with the Institute of Atmospheric Physics at the Chinese Academy of Sciences has recently been elected into a Foresight Expert Panel established by The International Science Council (ISC) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
ISC and UNEP have partnered to advance science-based strategic foresight to develop futures thinking, be better prepared to engage with challenges proactively, and to inform and guide decisions for the benefit of the global environment. In February 2023, UNEP and the ISC launched a call for nominations of individual experts to establish an independent Expert Panel to guide and oversee critical work on environmental horizon scanning and strategic foresight. In April 2023, the ISC and UNEP established the Foresight Expert Panel. Prof. JIA is one of 19 members of the Foresight Expert Panel.
The panel will guide and oversee critical work on environmental horizon scanning and strategic foresight. The work of the Panel will culminate into a Global Report to be published in 2024.
