The Bert Bolin Award is named after Bert Rickard Johannes Bolin (1925 –2007), a Swedish biogeochemistry/ meteorologist who served as the first chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Bolin was not only an outstanding researcher in global biogeochemical cycle and climate change, but also an effective science statesman and international leader who brought together a diverse range of views among thousands of scientists to inform the United Nations Convention on Climate Change and Kyoto Protocol. His efforts directly contributed to a broad understanding of the social, political, and security consequences of climate change brought about by anthropogenic activities. The award recognizes ground-breaking research or/and leadership in global environmental change through cross-disciplinary, interdisciplinary, and trans-disciplinary research in the past 5 years.
