Two documents released by the IUGS Commission on Geoethics

Chilean Code of Geoethics

The Task Group on Ethical Guidelines of the IUGS Commission on Geoethics released the Guidelines for Ethical Conduct at IUGS/IGC Meetings and Events that were approved by the IUGS Executive Committee (figure above – left).

This concise document outlines the principles and responsibilities essential for scientific events. After a preamble, several core principles are considered, including respect, integrity, safety, and fairness, which detail the expected behaviors during scientific events. Then, specific points termed 'responsibilities' are described, offering recommendations for both event participants and organizers. The guidelines also incorporate pivotal documents on research integrity, such as the Singapore and Montreal Statements, which were respectively issued in 2010 and 2013, to further reinforce ethical standards.


The Task Group on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) of the IUGS Commission on Geoethics released an Action Plan on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility for the IUGS that was approved by the IUGS Executive Committee (figure above – right). This document presents a range of recommendations divided into primary and secondary sections, accompanied by fundamental initiatives and a list of resources for the IUGS. Its purpose is to raise awareness about diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility, aiming to shape policies and practices that foster broader participation and representation across the various IUGS constituent groups. Moreover, it suggests foundational initiatives that the IUGS should contemplate adopting. The recommendations are organized according to their priority levels. Finally, the document also includes basic initiatives, resources, and examples to promote activities and facilitate outreach dissemination.
