Global change, some of the greatest challenges of our time, transcend geopolitical boundaries.  Engaging with these challenges is complex, involves transdisciplinary collaboration across sectors and academic disciplines, foresight and horizon scanning and systems approaches in an international forum.  Creating institutions and spaces that can foster the necessary trust, develop shared terminologies and understandings, and build funding mechanisms that are accessible to the full breadth of stakeholders is key to engaging with these challenges in an equitable and constructive way.  This session will explore different ways that the Belmont Forum and the Inter-American Institute for Global Change Research (IAI) work to bring transdisciplinary communities together to tackle global environmental change challenges.  It will also look to gain insight from the audience on how they engage in this transdisciplinary space, and what they see as necessary to tackle these challenges moving forward.
