The Climate Group
Not-for-profit independent organisation which is building an international leadership coalition of public and private institutions to create momentum in an international effort to halt climate change.
International not-for-profit environmental organization committed to the sustainable conservation of biodiversity working with a range of partners including individuals, governments, corporate partners and institutions. Earthwatch sends volunteers to take part in projects supporting the work of scientists in the field.
European Climate Forum
The ECF was founded in 2001 by seven European climate research institutes together with a number of businesses and NGOs. It serves as a platform for research, debate, and consulting related to climate change
European Climate Change Programme
The EU launched the First European Climate Change Programme in 2000 and the Second in 2005. This page gives access to programme documentation.
Gateway to the UN System's Work on Climate Change
Portal to UN umbrella organizations on climate change.
Global Environment Facility
GEF is an independent financial organization that provides grants to developing countries for projects that benefit the global environment and promote sustainable livelihoods in local communities. GEF projects address complex global environmental issues including climate change, land degradation and pollution.
Set up in 1978 by the International Energy Agency (IEA) this organization aims to improve cooperation and information exchange between countries that have national programmes in bioenergy research, development and implementation. Currently 20 countries plus the EU participate.
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
The IPCC is a scientific intergovernmental body set up by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). The IPCC was established to provide the decision-makers and others interested in climate change with an objective source of information about climate change. The IPCC does not conduct any research nor does it monitor climate related data or parameters. Its role is to assess on a comprehensive, objective, open and transparent basis the latest scientific, technical and socio-economic literature produced worldwide relevant to the understanding of the risk of human-induced climate change, its observed and projected impacts and options for adaptation and mitigation.
Small Island Developing States Network
The aim of this network is to support the sustainable development of small island developing states through enhanced information and communication technology. Themes include biodiversity, climate change, renewable energy, coastal and marine, international trade and tourism.
United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change
An international treaty, currently signed by 192 countries worldwide, that commits signatories to stabilise anthropogenic greenhouse emissions to levels that would limit "dangerous" effects of climate change. This is the official UN web site of the Climate Change Secretariat.
United Nations Environment Programme
In addition to its programmes, the UNEP provides access to environmental data and information, and helps governments use environmental information for planning for sustainable development.
Climate change impacts directly on the World Bank's mission of poverty reduction and thus the World Bank has developed an Agenda on Addressing Climate Change involving adaptation and mitigation.
World Climate Research Programme
The WCRP was established in 1980 to determine the extent to which climate can be predicted and to determine the extent of human influence on climate. It is sponsored by the International Council for Science (ICSU), the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO
