Integration of the Ukrainian science into the world data system

Creating the World Data Center for Geoinformatics and Sustainable Development (WDC-Ukraine), its certification and integration into the World Data System are described. The main principles of the WDC and its research priorities are considered. Main projects carried out by the WDC are reviewed. One of them is global modeling of the sustainable development in the context of the safety and quality of life aimed to get a set of indices and indicators for the sustainable development of complex systems at different levels.
