. * INTERNATIONAL Cities and Climate Change
: Global Report on Human Settlements (United Nations) http://www.unhabitat.org/pmss/listItemDetails.aspx?publicationID=3085 The United Nations' Human Settlement Programme produced this report that examines how cities in the world are affected by climate change and offers predictions for the 21st century. The website offers this overview of the report, Cities and Climate Change reviews the linkages between urbanization and climate change, two of the greatest challenges currently facing humanity in the 21st Century, and whose effects are converging in dangerous ways. [The report] illustrates the significant contribution of urban areas to climate change while at the same time highlighting the potentially devastating effects of climate change on urban populations. It reviews policy responses, strategies and practices that are emerging in urban areas to mitigate
and adapt to climate change, as well as their potential achievements and constraints. In conclusion, the report argues that urban areas have a pivotal role in both climate change mitigation and adaptation and identifies strategies and approaches for strengthening this role. Authors of the report present research data from several United Nations programs and other projects that examine climate change and environmental science.* The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species http://www.iucnredlist.org/ The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and Natural Resources Red List of Threatened Species makes information about plant and animal species available on its website. IUCN's approach to assessing conservation status is considered to be "the most comprehensive, objective global approach for evaluating the conservation status of plant and animal species." Links across the website point to lists of species that fall into a spectrum of conservation statuses labeled "least concern," "near threatened," "vulnerable," "endangered," "critically endangered," "extinct in the wild," and "extinct." A simple search box appears on the homepage, and additional search options offer the categories of keywords, taxonomy, location, systems, habitats, threats, assessment, and life history.* Ocean Data Viewer http://data.unep-wcmc.org/ This website is maintained by the United Nations Environment Programme, World Conservation Monitoring Center and provides data from several partner agencies about the world's oceans.
