Information Sources

We are aware of how difficult it can be to obtain useful, truthful, reliable and contrasted information nowadays.

That is why, with our personal experience, our knowledge obtained from the Master's Degree in Sustainability Science and Technology of the UPC and the experience of the different experts we have contact with, we would like to offer you a list of resources to help you solve any doubts you may have about sustainability and climate change.

United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC): The website of the convention's secretariat where you can find information about the treaties that have been signed, documents from previous COPs, annual reports, news, etc. Documents written during COP 26 will be uploaded in this link.

Official webpage of the COP26 presidency

UNFCCC and COP26 presidency social media

Intergovernamental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC): UN body, constituted by scientists from various knowledge areas, which assesses the scientific facts related to climate change. Its extensive, rigorous and detailed reports serve as a basis for the UNFCCC and its parties to make decisions that help in the fight against climate change. You can find the latest IPCC report in this link.

World Bank Data. World Bank database, covering topics such as GDP, population, Human Development Index, poverty, land use (forest, agricultural land, etc.), education or energy, among others, for all countries in the world and for different years. The data can be viewed on the website and downloaded free of charge.

International Energy Agency (IEA): It presents information and a database on energy production, use and losses for the different countries of the world and other energy-related metrics (imports, prices, CO2 emissions, etc.). The data can be viewed on the site and downloaded free of charge.

Our World in Data: On this page we can find a large number of maps and graphs where you can easily visualise global data by country and region about the main issues facing the world today. Poverty, climate change, wars, inequality, and many more.

Climate Action Tracker: On this website we can see, among other things, simple graphs with projections of global and country-specific emissions according to current mitigation commitments. In this way, they are compared with the path that should be followed if a certain increase in global average T° is to be avoided. Spoiler: we are in a very bad situation.
