It is now becoming clear that global climate change problems may be solved only in the context of much broader global eco­dynamics problems. A survey of relevant key issues includes a brief summary of present-day understanding of climate changes on the basis of observations and numerical modelling. Issues such as new results in the field of climate diagnostics, possibilities of fertilization effect due to CO2 increase, progress in modelling long-term climate dynamics, and new assessments of climatic impacts of atmospheric aerosols are surveyed. The present state and outlook of the Global Climate Observing System development is discussed, together with the priorities of future research.

KEY WORDS: Global climate change, ecodynamics.
