Science at the service of sustainable development. Contribution of French public research organizations; La science au service d'un developpement durable. Contribution des organismes publics de recherche francais

Abstract

The scientific knowledge has permitted to identify and to warn the public about many environmental problems. Today, in front of the challenges of the implementation of a sustainable development, the scientific community in its disciplinary diversity gives its contribution to the Johannesburg summit. This document was made by 16 French public research organizations under the coordination of the institute of research on development (IRD) on request of the Ministry of Research. It presents some elements of answer and some proposals in terms of priority of research about the following points: fight against paucity and promotion of viable ways of subsistence (reduction of inequalities, ecological agriculture and feeding security, urbanization, health); sustainable consumption and production means (energy stakes, transports, industry); more responsible management of natural resources (functioning of natural ecosystems, soils and biological resources management, durable management of water resources, oceans and coastal areas, climatic system, underground and mineral resources, knowledge and impact of natural catastrophes); implementation means (technology transfer, reinforcement of scientific capacity, education and training, expertise, public information); conclusion and proposals (priorities, organization of research activity).
