The CCKP provides a web-based platform to assist in capacity building and knowledge development. The aim of the portal is to help provide development practitioners with a resource to explore, evaluate, synthesize, and learn about climate related vulnerabilities and risks at multiple levels of details. Using climate science research results to inform the decision making process concerning policies or specific measures needed to tackle climate impacts, or even to understand low carbon development processes, is often a difficult, yet crucial, undertaking.
The CCKP contains environmental, disaster risk, and socio-economic datasets, as well as synthesis products, such as the Climate Adaptation Country Profiles, which are built and packaged for specific user-focused functions such as climate change indices for a particular country. The portal also provides intelligent links to other resources and tools.
This organization's mission is to "Catalyze innovative and practical solutions for climate change adaptation, mitigation, and climate stabilization, contribute to scientific research and communicate the results of that research in an accurate and comprehensive manner," to "create partnerships among policymakers, scientists, the public and environmental institutions at the local, national and international levels to address the climate challenge more effectively," and to "provide objective and comprehensive information on climate change risks and potential responses." It has less of a focus on the law than Climate Justice and purports to contribute objective information to the climate change discussion.
Research-quality climate modeling that can run on personal computers. With the software, design experiments and run simulations. The EdGCM Project, which includes exercises on global warming, is supported by the National Science Foundation and NASA.
Joint research program of 13 European research institutions that aimed to advance understanding of the new actors, institutions and mechanisms of global governance. While it addressed the phenomenon of global governance in general, most of their research projects focused on global environmental change and governance for sustainable development.
It assesses a range of information on human-caused climate change. Nobel Peace-Prize winner, IPCC includes a number of reports.
The IPCC is a scientific body. It reviews and assesses the most recent scientific, technical and socio-economic information produced worldwide relevant to the understanding of climate change. It does not conduct any research nor does it monitor climate related data or parameters.
The World Climate Change Report is a searchable news source that's organized by hot topics, country, agency and international organization. Provides information on climate change and clean energy issues.
BNA is a resource of over 90 titles covering legal and regulatory developments in business and government. Many of these resources have an email update service for FSU law faculty and students.
Online publication from the Law Library of Congress covering legal news and developments worldwide. Updated frequently and draws on information from official national legal publications and reliable press sources.
