La recherche suisse en développement durable doit proposer des solutions

Si rien ne change, les objectifs de développement durable des Nations unies ne pourront pas être atteints. Et le monde scientifique est également sur la sellette: comme le demande le premier rapport sur le développement durable dans le monde, la recherche visant des solutions concrètes doit être intensifiée. À travers une initiative, la SCNAT souhaite donc renforcer la recherche en développement durable en Suisse.

Academies call for better use of research in international cooperation

Poverty, social inequality, global environmental problems and pandemics: Switzerland has to focus its international cooperation strategy more strongly on poverty reduction and the Sustainable Development Goals of Agenda 2030 using research to make its global contribution. This is what the Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences call for in their statement on international cooperation, which was elaborated under the lead of KFPE.

Glacier volume reduced by 10 per cent in only five years

During the summer heatwaves of 2019, glacier melt rates reached record levels. This led to another year of major losses of ice volume, as reported by the Cryospheric Commission of the Swiss Academy of Sciences. Switzerland’s glaciers have thus shrunk by 10 per cent over the past five years.

Vrije Universiteit Brussel - PhD Scholarship for the osteological study of late medieval and early modern human bone collection

Make-Up of the City is an Interdisciplinary Research Project funded by the Research Council of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). Bringing together historians, archaeologists, geochemists and anatomists, the project wants to gain new insights into the composition and functioning of urban societies in the pre-modern Low Countries. It focuses on a late medieval and early modern parish cemetery in the Flemish city of Ieper, which was one of the largest industrial centres in Europe during the thirteenth and early fourteenth centuries.

La biodiversité est plus importante pour la santé qu'on ne le pensait auparavant

Le contact avec la nature permet le maintien en bonne santé. Ceci est confirmé par une analyse d’études scientifiques publiée par l'Académie des sciences naturelles (SCNAT) sous forme de fiche d’information. Par conséquent, la protection de la biodiversité est d'une grande importance pour relever les défis de santé publique. Ces derniers concernent notamment l'obésité, certaines maladies infectieuses, chroniques et non transmissibles, le développement de l'enfant, le vieillissement mental, la dépression et l'anxiété. Toute personne vivant en Suisse devrait donc avoir accès à une nature d’excellente qualité, écrivent les chercheurs.
