With these partners it seeks to contribute to a critical and holistic understanding of the dynamic relationship between biophysical and social processes for the appropriate management of the environment for human development.

Its Web site and newsletter produced by the Union of Catholic Asian News provide weekly updates on its efforts toward accomplishing this mission, social reflections and analyses, and digests of its technical reports and other documents stored in the official ESSC website.
