Climate & Atmosphere

Caribbean: Planning for Adaptation to Global Climate Change (CPACC) Supports Caribbean countries in preparing to cope with the adverse effects of global climate change (GCC), particularly sea level rise in coastal and marine areas.

Earth Council - Founded in 1992 to promote and advance the implementation of the Earth Summit agreements. At their site you can access (via FTP) documents from the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro and  speeches and articles back to 1996.

European Environment Agency, Climate - Reports on greenhouse gases emission assessment, trends and climate change in Europe. 

Global Change Data Gateway - A good place to locate timely news and U.S. agency reports and programs in a range of disciplines, from agriculture to solar physics.

InterSun, a collaborative effort between WHO, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the International Agency on Cancer Research (IARC) and the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP). InterSun studies health and environmental effects from enhanced ultraviolet radiation exposure due to stratospheric ozone depletion.

Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change - The role of the IPCC is to assess the scientific, technical and socio-economic information relevant for the understanding of the risk of human-induced climate change. It does not carry out new research nor does
it monitor climate related data. It bases its assessment mainly on published
and peer reviewed scientific technical literature. 

Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), Global Warming - NRDC is spearheading efforts to reduce greenhouse gas pollution, both in the U.S. and internationally. See policy papers and fact sheets on international protocols on greenhouse gases.

UN Global Environmental Facility, Ozone Depletion Studies - Reports on projects.

WINDandSEA - The oceanic and atmospheric Internet locator compiled by the Library of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency. Contains topically organized links  to science and policy sites. 

World Bank on global climate change The Bank reports on the economic impact of carbon emissions on global climate change, tools for calculating the economic impact carbon emissions, and programs that incorporate strategies for reduction of greenhouse gases.

World Bank, Montreal Protocol - The World Bank became an implementing agency for the Multilateral Fund for the Implementation of the Montreal Protocol (MFMP) in 1991, when it undertook investment operations to support the phase out of Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS). 

World Climate Research Programme - The WCRP was established in 1980, under the joint sponsorship of International Council for Science (ICSU) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). The program  encompasses studies of the global atmosphere, oceans, sea and land ice, and the land surface which together constitute the Earth's physical climate system.

World Meteorological Organization WMOs Atmospheric Research and Environmental Program (AREP) conducts a global atmosphere watch and conducts studies on world and tropical weather. Other programs include agricultural meteorology, marine meteorology, and hydrology and water resources.

WRI Atmosphere and Climate Statistical Data - Global estimates of emissions from industrial processes; a detailed view of emissions in specific countries; the global time series of CO2 emissions from industrial processes; and changes in concentrations for important trace gases that either contribute to global warming or to the depletion of the ozone layer.

Transportation and

OECD climate change and environmentally sustainable transport - OECD countries face important challenges to reconcile transport and sustainable development. This site provides an overview of OECD work on transport and the environment.
