GSI policy briefing note series

The GSI policy briefing note series publishes pieces intended for communicating relevant science to members of the non-academic, business and policy-making communities, on the topic of global and earth systems governance. In particular, the intention is to offer an open-access repository for peer-reviewed, accessible but rigorously scientific notes to promote the use of robust science in decision-making. Our main focus is on policy addressing issues in global and environmental systems, including climate change. Our aim is to facilitate communication within the science-policy interface, offering evidence bases for decision-making.
