Produced by the International Social Science Council (ISSC) and UNESCO, and published by the OECD, the 2013 World Social Science Report represents a comprehensive overview of the field gathering the thoughts and expertise of hundreds of social scientists from around the world.

This edition focuses on the transformative role of the social sciences in confronting climate and broader processes of environmental change, and in addressing priority problems from energy and water, biodiversity and land use, to urbanisation, migration and education.

The report includes 100 articles written by 150 authors from 41 countries all over the world. Authors represent some 24 disciplines, mainly in the social sciences.

The contributions highlight the central importance of social science knowledge for environmental change research, as a means of understanding changing environments in terms of social processes and as framework for finding concrete solutions towards sustainability.

    Have you ever considered about including a
    little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental
    and all. But think about if you added some great pictures or
    videos to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this blog could definitely be one of the best in its
    field. Terrific blog!

    This design is steller! You most certainly know how to keep a reader amused.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Wonderful job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that,
    how you presented it. Too cool!

    First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick
    question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before
    writing. I've had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.

    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?
    Thanks!

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has
    a lot of completely unique content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it
    seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any ways to help protect against content from being stolen? I'd certainly appreciate it.
