About

The Geneva Science and Diplomacy Anticipator (GESDA), a Swiss foundation and private-public partnership, was created in 2019 by the Federal Government and the Canton of Geneva to serve as an anticipatory science and diplomacy tool for greater impact and multilateral effectiveness. It has produced three major accomplishments so far: two editions of the GESDA Science Breakthrough Radar®, two editions of the Geneva Science and Diplomacy Anticipation Summit and a Solution Accelerator with the release of a first pipeline of solution ideas. GESDA serves as an honest broker of science-backed information, remaining neutral and objective as it gathers ideas through broad consultations. For more information, see www.gesda.global
