Websites for International Environmental Organizations
United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)
The UNEP promotes the implementation of sustainable development within the United Nations system. Clicking the ‘publications’ tab in the website will direct you to documents and meeting reports that have been produced by the UNEP, and most provide full access.
Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES)
General website for the CITES convention regulating international trade of endangered species. Provides access to information on the convention, and agendas and meeting minutes from Conference of the Parties (CoP) sessions. Clicking on ‘documents’ will direct you to various sources within the website.
This is an international wildlife trade monitoring network that ensures trade of wild plants and animals does not harm conservation of nature. Many of TRAFFIC’s publications are available through the website, and most allow for full access and viewing. Navigate to ‘publications’ to use the filtered search for the publications. Note that the search results will open in a new window and you need to scroll down to see the results.
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)
IPCC provides access to technical and scientific assessments of climate change published by the IPCC under the UNEP. There are three volumes for each year - one for each of the IPCC's working groups, and a synthesis report. Only specific years allow full access to the reports. These documents are usually hundreds of pages long and provide sufficient and useful information on climate change assessments in a understandable format. Shifting through the table of contents first can help to break down the reports. The library has some, but not all, of the reports in the lower level government documents and main floor general collection - search ‘IPCC’ in the catalog to locate them.
