IDGEC was a long-term international research project developed during the 1990s under the auspices of the International Human Dimensions Programme on Global Environmental Change (IHDP) and operated as one of IHDP's core projects. IDGEC sponsored and coordinated research on the roles that institutions play as determinants of the course of human/environmental interactions with respect to global environmental change. The project generated knowledge about social institutions and, at the same time, built and disseminated the intellectual capital needed to devise policies to mitigate global environmental change problems.
