"G-Science" Statements Call for Action on Global Challenges

In May 2012, national science academies of 15 countries issued joint statements calling on world leaders who were about to meet at the G8 Summit and other international gatherings during the year, to give greater consideration to the vital role science and technology could play in addressing some of the planet's most pressing challenges.

The "G-Science" statements recommend that governments engage the international research community in developing systematic, innovative solutions to three global dilemmas: how to simultaneously meet water and energy needs, how to build resilience to natural and technological disasters, and how to more accurately gauge countries' greenhouse gas emissions to verify progress toward national goals or international commitments.

The "G-Science" statements were signed by the leaders of national science academies from countries beyond the so-called G8+5. Many of these national science academies have expertise in the areas addressed in the statements, and academies around the world also collaborate and inform policymaking via their participation in groups such as the Global Network of Science Academies, the InterAcademy Council, the Academy of Sciences for the Developing World, and the International Council for Science.
