UNEP Launches “Low Carbon World” Website

25 February 2010: On the sidelines of the 11th special session of the Governing Council/Global Ministerial Environment Forum of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), taking place in Bali, Indonesia, from 24–26 February 2010, UNEP launched the "Low Carbon World" website, a web-based communications platform that aims to facilitate the move to global low carbon economies by assisting knowledge transfer and simplifying access to information and tools that can be difficult to trace.

The new website is a joint project between Low Carbon and the UN's Climate Neutral Network (CN NET). It will list every country's carbon policies, commitments, historical performance, future projections and opportunities, as well as country-specific marketplaces, networks, associations and standards that are relevant to government departments and investment agencies.
