International Council for Science (ICSU) Activities.
Interdisciplinary ICSU bodies are created by the General Assembly as the need for these arises in cooperative projects. Two of these,. IGBP, planning for the International Geosphere-Biosphere Program: A Study of Global Change, was begun in 1986. The IGBP is a research program with the objective to describe and understand the interactive physical, chemical, and biological processes that.
The International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics, a non-governmental scientific organization dedicated to the promotion and coordination of physical, chemical and mathematical studies of the Earth and its environment in space, was established in July 1919, during a meeting of the then International Council of Research (now the International Council of Scientific Unions, or ICSU) in Brussels.

The International Arctic Science Committee, is a non governmental organisation that aims to encourage, facilitate and promote cooperation in all aspects of arctic research in all countries engaged in arctic research and in all areas of the arctic region.
In recent years the structure of the International Council of Scientific Unions (ICSU) and the actions of many ICSU bodies have increasingly come under criticism from governments, scientific academies, and individual scientists. National committees are taking a hard look at the benefits of adhering to nongovernmental organizations, and threats of withdrawal are being voiced here and there.
Introduction to CAWSES. SCOSTEP's mission is to implement research programs in solar-terrestrial physics that benefit from international participation and that involve at least two ICSU bodies. Some past SCOSTEP programs have been comprehensive, such that virtually all of SCOSTEP's energy was dedicated to the implementation of one large program at a time. Examples of these were STEP in 1990-95.
