This programme aims to encourage better management of water for food production by increasing the resilience of social and ecological systems.
It does this by focusing on the interconnections between water, food and poverty in developing countries. The programme helps develop water-related innovations by bringing together scientists, development specialists, policymakers and communities.
The website publishes information on its research programmes and projects as well as blogs and related news, job vacancies and events.
ISESCO aims to promote the separate and distinct educational, scientific and cultural heritage that combines the 57 OIC member countries. The primary purpose of the organisation is to coordinate the activities of specialist agencies responsible for similar functions within each of the OIC member countries.
ISESCO has helped develop a number of action plans and strategies on an OIC-wide basis in areas such as water resources, university education and Islamic culture. ISESCO has also started awarding prizes in education and literacy, sciences and university research, and culture and communication to individuals within the OIC member countries.
The NCCR North–South organisation, one of twenty National Centres of Competence in Research (NCCR) set up by the Swiss National Science Foundation, is a network of more than 350 researchers from more than 40 countries dedicated to finding sustainable, practical solutions to the challenges of global change. It focuses on themes that include livelihoods, health and natural resources and works through partnerships between institutions and individuals in the North and South.
The website details information on current partnerships and research projects, and provides free access to publications such as reports, PhD theses, policy briefs and project results. Videos, images and an events and jobs section are also available free of charge.
This part of the WHO's website focuses on the links between climate change and health. One factsheet looks specifically at climate change and infectious disease: it examines the historical evidence for links between climate and vector-borne disease, outlines different models to forecast climatic influences on infectious disease and offers examples of exactly how changes in climate can affect the spread of infectious disease. Another factsheet describes how to translate the science into useful policy decisions so will be particularly valuable for policymakers.
