United Nations Environment Programme

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) produces Global Environment Outlook (GEO) reports under its charge from the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development. The IFs team participated actively in the preparation of GEO 4, released in 2007. In 2017, the UNEP invited our Research System Developer Steve Hedden to participate as a coordinating lead author of the “Outlooks” chapter of the upcoming sixth Global Environmental Outlook (GEO 6). Jonathan D. Moyer and Barry Hughes will also participate as authors. In both GEO 4 and in the upcoming GEO 6, forecasts from IFs help integrate forecasts from other contributing groups in the project.
