There is a multitude of internationally-agreed environmental goals and objectives, which are part of outcome documents of relevant United Nations summits and conferences, resolutions of the General Assembly, decisions of other global intergovernmental conferences, multilateral environmental agreements and decisions of their governing bodies. The compendium of those goals and objectives is called the Global Environmental Goals (GEGs).
The purpose of the GEGs-Live website is to provide up-to-date information on the progress towards achieving these GEGs. In addition, it puts the information into the context of the currently elaborated Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The variables and data are mainly drawn from UNEP’s Environmental Data Explorer.
Users can access the information they are searching for either through the GEGs or the SDGs, as parallel points of entry. Based on the user’s choice, the website shows the direct interlinkages between politically-agreed goals and targets on the one hand, and relevant underlying data for monitoring these on the other.
This website is a value judgment-free effort by UNEP to provide up-to-date information to show progress achieved on issues identified in the GEGs and the currently elaborated SDGs. It is intended to better inform both decision-makers and the general public.

Climate Economy Report

Very interesting website. For once, for the report (N. Stern is the key person behind). But even more for the website design. It’s like an interactive ebook brought online, with video which can play (fullscreen) in the background, links in all directions, pages which just need to be scrolled down for overview, and to the left for deeper look into it…

Pretty cool… Although, still, I don’t read the stuff, as I don’t like reading text on screen…

Interesting, very interactive site of automatic information collection/harvesting on specific environmental topics or keywords. The engine behind runs through all major social platforms and collects information and puts it into the right perspective, respectively inserts it into its larger database for connecting the dots (that is, the environmental themes, keywords, products).
