Global Carbon Project (GCP) Home


The Global Carbon Project falls under the umbrella of non-governmental organizations devoted to environmental research. It operates thanks to hundreds of scientists who volunteer their time and efforts to contribute to the development and execution of the implementation strategy.

The Global Carbon Project is a core project of Future Earth. It was originally established by the Earth System Science Partnership (ESSP), which consists of the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP), International Human Dimensions Programme on Global Environmental Change (IHDP), World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) and Diversitas.
