Climate Change Library

The Climate Change Secretariat recently launched their "public" library Web site. The objective of the Web site is to link users of climate change information to resource providers. A key new feature is the links to the Web sites of all those involved in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) process including: Parties of the Convention, Observer States, Accredited NGOs, IGOs and UN and Specialized Agencies. Of special interest is the link to on-line resources such as: glossaries, newsletters, annual reports, full-text documents, climate change search engines and many other electronic tools.

To locate the Library Web site, go to the UNFCCC Web site at www.unfccc.int   and click on "Resources". (Source: FIU, 26 June 2000.)


A new list called CLIMATE-D that will offer moderated, focused and high-level policy discussions on a series of key topics in the climate change debate has just been created by the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD). Experts in specific topics will be invited to "chair" an ongoing series of virtual sessions, which would each last for limited periods. This new list is in addition to IISD's other informational list CLIMATE-L on the UNFCCC/Climate Change process that is now in its fifth year with about 5 000 subscribers.
