About SNAPP Teams

SNAPP has engaged more than 450 institutions and 1000 experts from nearly 60 countries in 45 teams of scientists and stakeholders since 2013.

A SNAPP team is a multi-disciplinary group of experts representing a broad suite of sectors, institutions, and specialties who would not otherwise convene around a targeted, complex challenge. Teams include:

  • Academic experts in scientific fields directly relevant to the key questions
  • Representatives of governments, multilateral institutions, and the private sector
  • Practitioners from conservation, humanitarian, sustainable development, cultural, and spiritual organizations

To date, these teams have produced over 330 tools and other science-to-solution “products,” including over 80 peer-reviewed papers, and at least eight spin-off initiatives have sprung from their work.

SNAPP teams work to find solutions to these critical challenges:
