Standing Committee for the Environment: a Pluridisciplinary reflection on the Environment
The Standing Committee for Environmental Sciences of the Académie des Sciences, chaired by Jean-Claude duplessy, was created in its initial form in 1989, to closely follow environmental issues that are considered from the viewpoint of science. To tackle these issues, which are pluridisciplinary by their very nature, one needs to take into account all the natural elements - water, air, solid ground - and problems - climate, global food, health, demography, environmental contamination - as well as environmental science, ecosystems and ecosystemic systems (i.e. the benefits man derives from ecosystems).
