The paper infonns on the International Geosphere -Biosphere Programme andon the role of geology therein.The ICSU Generally Assembly in Berne decided to establish this programme in September,1986, as an international venture focussed on the interdisciplinary study of global changes.The programme involves several core projects, among them is the programme on Past GlobalChanges aimed at the study of the earth's history during the past 2 000 years and on the glacialand interglacial cycles in the late Quaternary. Based on a preliminary agreement between ICSU,lUGS, IGBP and Unesco, an effort under the heading "Earth Processes and Global Changes"with sub -elements related to the ocean record of past global changes, the terrestrial record ofpast global changes, anthropogenically induced global changes and the interaction of bio -diversity reduction and global environment was proposed. A joint lUGS / Unesco workinggroup is now preparing the Feasibility Study for this programme.
