PUBLICATION: World Resources Report, Decision Making in a Changing Climate
The latest World Resources Report, Decision Making In A Changing Climate, is presented on an interactive new website that offers opportunities for comment and feedback before the WRR report is published in April, 2011.
The timely issue of how national governments make decisions for a changing climate – and specifically how they integrate the risks posed by climate change into planning and policymaking processes – is the topic of the latest World Resources Report (WRR), which has just launched its interactive website www.worldresourcesreport.org.
The World Resources Report has been jointly published every two years since 1986 by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), the World Bank, and the World Resources Institute. This latest edition boasts an innovative, interactive model.
Audiences have been engaged from the outset, creating a broad range of research involving government officials, climate experts, international leaders and practitioners in the field---over 100 from around the world. All the research---expert papers, adaptation case studies, in-country scenario exercises, and targeted issue roundtables---will be available on the site as it is prepared.
This research, and the comments and contributions provided by visitors to the WRR web site, will inform the findings and recommendations of the WRR Report, to be published in April 2011.
WRR encourages visitors to review the research and provide their comments and reactions. WRR welcomes additional papers, reports, case histories and personal experiences regarding adaptation decisions.
