As a result of the success of these first Workshops, and the general framework in which these meetings are held, the "Wengen Workshops on Global Change Research" are now an annual event, organized by us at the University of Geneva, Switzerland, with scientific support from other institutions that have a major interest in the selected themes of the Workshops.
