Welcome to the Climate Change Information Network. Also known as CC:iNet, this web portal serves as a clearinghouse for information sources on public information, education and training in the field of climate change. It is designed to help governments, organizations and individuals gain rapid and easy access to ideas, strategies, contacts, experts and materials that can be used to motivate and empower people to take effective action on climate change.

CC:iNet has been established at the request of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Their underlying aim is to support Article 6 of the Convention, which calls on governments to promote education, training and public awareness on climate change. The menu items on the left of this page will guide you through the resources available on the clearinghouse.
