Climate Change Studies Library

In the context of "World Climate Teach-In Day" a Climate Change Studies Library has been established. This is a one-stop site where information on studies and reports are available and can be downloaded. This site will facilitate access to information on research and studies on climate change and allows contacts with the agencies performing such studies, hence increasing accessibility and know-how transfer.

"Interested persons/organisations are kindly invited to apply with their studies/reports for incorporation in the website (info@world.climateday.net)."

The documents are available in a "category view" and a "alphabetical view".

Category 1: Technical elements related to climate change
Category 2: Climate Change and Society
Category 3: Economics and Climate Change
Category 4: Political and policy aspects of climate change
Category 5: Education and Awareness-raising on climate change
