5. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change :
  Recognizing the problem of potential global climate change the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) established the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 1988. It is open to all members of the UNEP and WMO. The role of the IPCC is to assess the scientific, technical and socio-economic information relevant for the understanding of the risk of human-induced climate change. It does not carry out new research nor does it monitor climate related data. It bases its assessment mainly on published and peer reviewed scientific technical literature.
6. International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) :
  The International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) is a non-profit organization created in June 1999 to establish a functional international framework for trading greenhouse gas emission reductions. Our membership includes leading international companies from across the carbon trading cycle. IETA members seek to development an emissions trading regime that results in real and verifiable greenhouse gas emission reductions balancing economic efficiency with environmental integrity and social equity.
7. The Climate Change Knowledge Network :
  The Climate Change Knowledge Network brings together expertise, experience and perspectives from more than a dozen organizations from developing, transitional and developed countries. Limited resources, knowledge and capacity in developing countries, and lack of dialogue and understanding between industrialized and developing countries, obstruct progress toward international efforts to address climate change. The Climate Change Knowledge Network aims to help address these gaps by facilitating focused research and capacity building in developing and developed countries, with sustainable development as the overall goal
8. Global Environment Facility :
  The Global Environment Facility was established to forge international cooperation and finance actions to address four critical threats to the global environment: biodiversity loss, climate change, degradation of international waters, and ozone depletion. Related work to stem the pervasive problem of land degradation is also eligible for GEF funding.
9. Foundation for International Environmental Law & Development :
  The Foundation for International Environmental Law and Development (FIELD), was founded in 1989 in order to tap the tremendous potential of law at the international, regional and domestic level, to encourage environmental protection and sustainable development. The result of that initiative, ten years later, is a vibrant and thriving organisation whose advice and assistance are sought by governments, non-governmental organisations, inter-governmental organisations and industry.

10. EUROPEAN ENVIRONMENTAL BUREAU's web-page on Climate change and Energy :
  The EEB is a federation of 134 environmental citizens organisations based in all EU Member States and most Accession countries, as well as a few neighbouring countries. They range from local and national to European and international. The aim of the EEB is to protect and improve the environment of Europe and to enable the citizens of Europe to play their part in achieving that goal The EEB office in Brussels was established in 1974 to provide as a focal point for its members to monitor and respond to the emerging EU environmental policy.
11. Swiss Federal Railways SBB AG :
  The status of the SBB AG and of the railway as an energy-saving, space-saving and environmentally-friendly transport mode must be maintained and enhanced to give it a central importance.
12. European Environment Information and Observation Network (EIONET) Page on Air and Climate Change :
  EIONET is a collaborative network of the European Environment Agency and its Member Countries, connecting National Focal Points in the EU and accession countries, European Topic Centres, National Reference Centres, and Main Component Elements. These organisations jointly provide the information that is used for making decisions for improving the state of environment in Europe and making EU policies more effective. EIONET is both a network of organisations and an electronic network (e-EIONET). This page provides information on the topics of air quality, air emissions, greenhouse gas emissions and climate change.
13. Environmental Defense :
  Environmental Defense is a leading national non-profit organization representing more than 300,000 members. Since 1967, we have linked science, economics, and law to create innovative, equitable, and cost-effective solutions to the most urgent environmental problems.
14. Global Change and Terrestrial Ecosystem (GCTE) :
  Global Change and Terrestrial Ecosystem (GCTE) is a Core Project of the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP).GCTE has two objectives: To predict the effects of changes in climate, atmospheric composition, and land use on terrestrial ecosystems, including (i) agriculture, forestry, soils; and (ii) biodiversity. To determine how these effects lead to feedbacks to the atmosphere and the physical climate system.
15. Tata Energy Research Institute (TERI) :
  A dynamic and flexible organization with a global vision and a local focus, TERI (Tata Energy Research Institute) was established in 1974. While in the initial period the focus was mainly on documentation and information dissemination activities, research activities in the fields of energy, environment, and sustainable development were initiated towards the end of 1982. The genesis of these activities lay in Teri’s firm belief that efficient utilization of energy, sustainable use of natural resources, large-scale adoption of renewable energy technologies, and reduction of all forms of waste would move the process of development towards the goal of sustainability.
  The EPA Global Warming Site is provided as a public service by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. EPA's climate change programs and activities are an integral part of the Agency's mission and purpose. With the Global Warming Site, we strive to present accurate information on the very broad issue of climate change and global warming in a way that is accessible and meaningful to all parts of society – communities, individuals, business, public officials and governments.
