The International Center for Climate Governance (ICCG) announces the birth of its Climate Policy Observer website, a new tool for understanding and investigating current international events on climate change in their political, economic and social implications.
The new Climate Policy Observer website replaces the previous web platform, launched in 2012, and gathers ICCG studies on the evolution of climate policy, providing country by country news updates, summaries on climate and energy policies, and access to data, publications and official documents. The new structure, with its fresh graphic design, enables rapid consultation of all the content available on individual Countries or specific topics ranging from international climate negotiations to the deployment of emissions trading, the development of renewable energy and low carbon emissions.
The goal is to provide clear and accessible information even to a non-specialized public, and to promote a broad dissemination of knowledge about what is happening nationally and internationally in regard to climate change. At the same time, the constant updating and accurate coverage of relevant topics make the new site a useful tool for specialists in the field too: researchers, policy makers, journalists and NGOs who seek a timely summary of often fragmented data. The new online platform was presented at the Second Annual Conference of the Italian Society for Climate Sciences, two days of dialogue among scientists, researchers and policy makers, held at Ca 'Foscari University in Venice.
