IISD: SUPPORTING TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY

IISD RS 2014 Funding Campaign

*The Ears in the Forest...

The philosopher asked: “If a tree falls in the forest, and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?” Those of us who care about sustainability could ask an analogous question, and one with far more practical implications: If a small number of individuals are discussing the future of our planet, and the rest of us don’t know what they are saying, are the things they discuss relevant? Are the decisions they reach valid? more »

*Earth Negotiations Bulletin

IISD publishes the Earth Negotiations Bulletin, providing valuable reports and analysis from UN negotiations on climate change, biodiversity and other key sustainable development and environmental issues. For the past 22 years, IISD has sent teams of experts to key negotiating sessions, and now provides this service from more than 30 meetings each year. The reports create transparency and accountability and are used by an estimated 125,000 policy makers and other stakeholders.

Please support IISD with a financial contribution and help guarantee our conference reporting at key meetings during 2014. All inquiries are to be directed to jennifer@iisd.org.

*Policy & Practice Knowledgebases

IISD manages and updates knowledgebases that summarize and categorize information on UN and intergovernmental activities related to international climate change, sustainable development, biodiversity, sustainable energy, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean and small island developing states policy and practice. These information dissemination mechanisms are an invaluable aid to mainstreaming and integrating strategies, objectives, programmes and policy dialogue across the international community, particularly in developing countries. In a recent survey of our readers, 76% of respondents indicated that they had recommended or forwarded information from our knowledgebases to their colleagues.
