Global change SysTem for Analysis, Research and Training

START helps developing nations build their own research capacity in order to address issues surrounding global environmental change. It does this by creating networks that conduct research on regional aspects of environmental change, and inform policy makers. START is sponsored by the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP), the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP), and the International Human Dimensions Programme on global environmental change (IHDP). {{LINK_LABEL_GO_TO_WEBSITE}}
