Greening Universities Toolkit V2.0: Transforming Universities into Green and Sustainable Campuses: A Toolkit for Implementers - Advance Copy
United Nations Environment Programme

The objective of this Toolkit is to inspire, encourage and support universities to develop and implement their own transformative strategies for establishing green, resource-efficient and low carbon campuses. It will provide an opportunity to build stakeholder capacity to deliver systemic, institution-wide integration of sustainability principles into all aspects of university business. This initiative is intended to improve the sustainability performance of universities globally and to provide support to other stakeholders embarking on their own sustainability journeys. Further, it will enhance the practical relevance of universities to sustainable development and by extension, the new paradigm of the “green economy”. In short, the aim is to encourage and promote the contribution of universities to the overall sustainability of the planet. We cannot have a sustainable world where universities promote unsustainable – conversely, the sustainable university can help catalyse a more sustainable world.

The Global Climate System: Climate System Monitoring June 1986-November 1988
United Nations Environment Programme, World Meteorological Organization, World Climate Data and Monitoring Programme

This report, the third biennial review of THE GLOBAL CLIMATE SYSTEM, is based on the current scientific understanding of the climate system and provides a basis for the monitoring of global change. Due to deficiencies in the global observing system, the diagnostic analyses of cause-effect relationships are preliminary for some regions and some climatic events or processes. It is hoped that the review will promote further research and better observing systems that would lead to improved models of the complex interactive processes occurring within the climate system.
