International Scientific Advisory Council (ISAC)

Objective

The International Scientific Advisory Council of ISRIC-World Soil Information is an advisory body to help set out the overall strategy for ISRIC, and to provide advice about, and actively support actions to implement the strategy.

The specific areas for recommendation and actions concern:

1) international institutional strategy,

2) science policy and funding strategy with 3, 5 and 10 year goals, and

3) support for fund raising opportunities

 

The Managing Board of ISRIC has decided to change the composition of the International Scientific Advisory Council by looking for a diverse and more balanced representation of the science community, international governing bodies and private sector and civil society. New members are being sought.
