Science-policy interface (SPI)

Especially in the area of environment, it is important for researchers to communicate scientific findings in an appropriate and accessible way to policy-makers in order for them to make the right choices in drawing up policies aiming at sustainable solutions to environmental problems. An improved dialogue between the scientific and policy-making communities is necessary to improve linkages between policy needs and research programmes as well as to enhance the accessibility of scientific knowledge to policy makers. This dialogue should and is taking place at all levels - local, regional, national as well as international.
