Complex global challenges transcend national boundaries and pose significant threats to societies, ecosystems and humanity. Addressing such challenges in a sustainable manner requires strategic research investments, international collaboration, collective resources and knowledge exchange between diverse communities.
Global Challenges is a new kind of journal that cuts across disciplines and international boundaries, bringing science, technology, and social science communities together to identify viable solutions to ensure that research informs policy. The journal will initially focus on five major challenges: climate change, energy, food, agriculture & nutrition, global heath, and water.
