Our work is guided by policymakers, managers, and scientists from around the world. An Expert Management Advisory Group made up of nine policy and management experts is providing high-level guidance and consultation for the project throughout the four years. They provide a critical sounding board for our work as well as an avenue for disseminating our results by connecting us to a broad network of managers and policymakers. A multi-disciplinary group of ten scientific experts is similarly providing input and guidance to the project from their perspectives across many different fields related to tipping points. This Scientific Working Group includes leading experts in the study of tipping points from economics, sociology, mathematical theory, restoration ecology, and other fields. They are specifically helping to develop the overall conceptual framework for the project and its outputs, and will be engaged with the project during Phase One.
