UNFCCC conference, and finding UN documentation

by Katharine Thompson

Those of you following the goings-on of the UNFCCC conference in Bali may find their website useful.

The UNFCCC provides free online access to their official documents, and even offers webcasts of meetings so you can pretend you’re in Bali too.

The United Nations publishes a vast amount of reports and other documentation, and much of this material is freely available online. As it’s the UN many documents can be downloaded in languages other than English.

To help you find your way to the information you want try searching UNBISnet , which is essentially the library catalogue for the UN. You can search by keyword, or browse subject headings. For example, a quick search on ‘clean development mechanism’ gets 169 results.

The UN also produces a number of research guides, including one on environment which details the many UN bodies concerned with this subject.

All the above have also been added to del.icio.us for you. The quickest way to find them is to click the UN tag.
