The IPCC shares the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with Al Gore.
The IPCC has a useful website that was just re-reviewed by today’s Scout Report. Notable is their new calendar of events, and especially the series: annual climate assessment reports. ‘Scientists and policymakers will also want to look at some of their exhaustive scholarly works which include “Safeguarding the Ozone Layer” and “Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage”.’ The “Activities” area includes information on their National Greenhouse Gas Inventories Programme.
International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives
Founded in 1990 in New York, the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) is a broad international association of local governments and related units of governance committed to sustainable development. The ICLEI provides support to their members through technical consulting and training programs, and their website also serves as a clearinghouse for this material, along with offering additional items, including research reports, newsletters, and policy briefs. On their homepage, visitors can read about their latest news, check job postings, and also learn about recent developments from their members. Most visitors will want to continue their exploration of the site by clicking over to the “Programs” area. Here they can learn about their “Cities for Climate Protection” campaign, read up on their biodiversity initiative, and take a look at their tools for creating sustainable cities. [KMG]
