Prof. Walter Leal
ICCIP's Director

This first decade of the 21st Century has shown how much still needs to be done in respect of climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts, but also in respect of communication, education and training on climate change. Therefore, the Decade 2011-2020 needs to be the "Decade of Climate Change Education, Awareness and Training" and ICCIP will be running various projects and will organise many activities, to achieve this goal.

Climate Change Studies Library

In the context of ICCIP a Climate Change Studies Library has been established. This is a one-stop site where information on studies and reports are available and can be downloaded. This site will facilitate access to information on research and studies on climate change and allows contacts with the agencies performing such studies, hence increasing accessibility and know-how transfer.

"Interested persons/organisations are kindly invited to apply with their studies/reports for incorporation in the website ("
