It also provides links to other local and international sites
on the subject.
- GEO 2000 - A coordinated network of Collaborating Centres is the core
of the GEO process. These centres have played an increasingly
important role in preparing GEO reports. They are now responsible
for almost all the regional inputs, thus combining top-down integrated
assessment with bottom-up environmental reporting. A number of
Associated Centres also participate, providing specialized expertise.
Four working groups ?on modelling, scenarios, policy and data
?provide advice and support to the GEO process, helping coordinate
the work of the Collaborating Centres to make their outputs as
comparable as possible. Other United Nations agencies contribute
to the GEO Process through the United Nations System-wide Earthwatch,
coordinated by UNEP. In particular, they provide substantive data
and information on the many environmentally-related issues that
fall under their individual mandates; they also help review drafts.

- Worldbank's Global Climate Change - The World Bank's Global Environment Division (ENVGC) has begun
applying a new analytical tool called a Global Overlay to integrate
Global Environment Externalities into the World Bank's economic
and sector work. Climate change global overlays are applied in
sectors such as energy, transport, forestry and agriculture. Similar
to a graphic overlay, which attaches a new layer to an already
existing surface, the global overlay concept adds a global dimension
to the sector studies that the Bank undertakes on a regular basis
for its client countries. Global overlays reflect a growing urgency
to integrate global concerns with national development strategies.
Climate change overlays build on the Framework Convention on Climate
Change (FCCC), which asks its signatories to "take climate change
into account, to the extent feasible, in their relevant social,
economic, and environmental policies and actions" and on the Bank's
operational policy OP 10.04, which notes that global externalities
are "normally identified in the Bank's sector work or in its environmental
