Monitoring the Planetary Emergencies


The identification of Planetary Emergencies and their categorisation into fifteen main groups, with 56 subgroups, was one of the most important early achievements of the World Federation of Scientists. Today, it leads the fight against the Planetary Emergencies, a field of endeavour of vital importance for both the Developed and the Developing Countries throughout the world, and one in which a united, international effort will have greater impact than the achievements of individual or groups of countries.

To date the World Federation of Scientists has established the following Permanent Monitoring Panels and Working Groups:
