Vision and Mandate
‘ICSU’s long-term vision is of a
world where excellence in science
is effectively translated into policy
making and socio-economic
development. In such a world,
universal and equitable access to
scientific data and information is a
reality and all countries have the
scientific capacity to use these and
to contribute to generating the
new knowledge that is necessary
to establish their own development
pathways in a sustainable manner.’
