AlertNet also provides tools for journalists, including facts and figures, crisis briefings and training modules.
CABI is a not-for-profit, intergovernmental organisation specialising in agricultural and environmental research, publishing and communication. With over 40 different member countries, its scientific projects include finding ways to lower production costs while using ecological practices. CABI studies environmental impacts of invasive species and pests, and searches for natural ways of controlling them. CABI also finds solutions to agricultural problems caused by climate change, provides microbial services and advises on trade policy.
Part of the Institute of Development Studies at Sussex University, United Kingdom, Climate Lite publishes briefings and short films on climate change and international development.
These cover issues including low-carbon development, climate change research and the Sahel community, China's position on reducing carbon emissions, the legal aspects of encouraging the United States to sign up to a climate agreement, social protection and climate adaptation, and pro-poor climate adaptation.
The information is presented in non-technical language, making it accessible for people with little knowledge of climate change. The website is aimed at policymakers and climate change practitioners.
This web portal publishes news and information on the Food and Agriculture Organization's (FAO) activities in climate change. It links to key FAO publications on agriculture, livestock, forestry and fisheries as well as cross-sector topics such as bioenergy, biodiversity and climate risk management. The gateway gives information on FAO's work in these areas and provides links to relevant factsheets, events and multimedia including videos and audio lectures.
This website, created by the Center for International Forestry Research, publishes a wealth of information on the links between climate change and forests in topics ranging from adaptation to mitigation to carbon accounting to the role of biofuels. It includes case studies as well as visual and audio presentations.
The Guardian Environment website publishes news and commentary on environmental issues such as climate change, energy, ethical living, food and recycling.
It also provides blogs, job listings and multimedia, including audio and video podcasts. Users can comment and are encouraged to join discussions.
The website also aggregates relevant news from members of the Guardian Environment Network, which brings together the world's best environment websites including SciDev.Net, China Dialogue, Real Science and the World Resources Institute.

After the release of the Third Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in 2001, UNEP and GRID Arendal published this set of 25 graphics focused on the special challenges that Africa faces due to expected long term climate change.
Three sections cover the evidence of change in Africa, the science driving these changes, and vulnerability to — and trends in — extreme events on the continent. The graphics also show the severity of climate impacts on fresh water, human health, and food in Africa.
