Sixth WDS Scientific Committee Meeting
The WDS Scientific Committee (WDS-SC) met for the sixth time on 28–30 March 2012 in London, UK. The meeting was hosted by the Royal Society; ICSU's UK National Member.
A gathering with UK-based WDS Members was organized prior to the meeting, and explored new avenues to increase UK participation in ICSU-WDS, including through discussions with the Natural Environment Research Council.
The fruitful exchange of ideas and perspectives at this gathering led the WDS-SC to decide that such discussions with WDS Members should be held whenever the its meetings are located outside of Paris or Tokyo.
