IRD is a French public research organisation and an actor of the international development agenda. Its priorities are in line with Sustainability Science and the aim of achieving solutions that are adapted to the environmental, economic, social and cultural challenges facing mankind and the planet. IRD focuses on cross-cutting and multidisciplinary approaches alongside science and sustainability.
Our action for climate change
IRD's Ocean Resources research teams take an integrated approach to marine development research, particularly focussing on processes that affect the intertropical zone. The Ocean thus has an essential part in the complex mechanisms that govern climate. Our scientists participate in building scenarios for changing socio-ecosystems that take into account climate risks, environmental hazards and pressures on renewable resources.
