Conference session highlights importance of interdisciplinary approach to Earth system science

How can food and energy supply be ensured in a sustainable manner? These are complex research questions that call for the highly interdisciplinary approach followed by the four projects of the Earth System Science Partnership on carbon, food, water, and health.

Diana Liverman will talk about the question 'How Can We Achieve Food Security in the Face of Global Environmental Change?' She is Director of Oxford University's Environmental Change Institute and chairs the Scientific Advisory Committee for the Global Environmental Change and Food Systems (GECAFS) project. Her research focuses on environmental change and policy, including climate change and its impacts on agriculture and water, the social causes and consequences of land-use change, and environmental management in the context of globalization.

Tony McMichael will present 'Issues and Research Needs of Human Health in the Context of Global Environmental Change'. He is Director of the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health at the Australian National University. His main epidemiological research interests are environmental influences on health. He is a Review Editor for the climate-health assessment for the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Cimate Change (IPCC) and played a corresponding role in the recently-completed international Millennium Assessment Project.

Felino Lansigan's presentation is called 'Beyond Conflict: Sharing the Global Water System for Nature, Food, and Economic Development'. He is Professor at the Philippines Los Banos (UPLB) School of Environmental Science and Management and the UPLB Institute of Statistics. He is the Vice Chair of the Scientific Steering Committee of the LOICZ project (Land-Ocean Interactions in the Coastal Zone), and a member of the Scientific Steering Committee of the GWSP project (Global Water System Project). He also advises the Philippine Department of Environment.
