The Russian Federation is one of the initiating founding member countries of IIASA. Since its creation in 1972 with the idea of the leaderships of the USSR and the USA to use scientific cooperation as a “bridge” for building relations between East and West, IIASA became a unique place where scientists from Russia and other parts of the world could work together on topical global problems.
Forty-five years of continuous intensive cooperation proved to be beneficial and created long-term benefits.
Land is critical to human livelihoods and wellbeing, while actions related to land use also play an important role in the climate system. IIASA researchers contributed to the development of a new roadmap outlining actions on deforestation, restoration, and carbon cuts that could lead to the land sector becoming carbon neutral by 2040 and a net carbon sink by 2050.
