Climate ChangeS is a frequently updated web-site with the latest and most interesting working papers on the Economics of Climate Change. The literature on the Economics of Climate Change is growing at an unprecedented rate and it is becoming increasingly harder for researchers to keep the pace with new advancements of their discipline. Climate ChangeS is a web-site created to bridge this knowledge gap by providing researchers with a timely and accurate update of new research papers. On a weekly basis, links to the most recent and interesting working papers on the Economics of Climate Change are aggregated from a variety of sources for easy and convenient reference. The focus is on research at the frontier, with most contributions appearing just a few days after having been released. For this reason, journal articles are not tracked. Climate ChangeS has been designed for researchers in the field, mainly economists, but policy experts and specialized journalists alike will find it a useful tool to gain wide, timely and easy exposure to the developments of the discipline.

Greek Environmental Valuation Database
GEVAD aims to facilitate the application of environmental economics
in decision-making processes using the benefits transfer approach.
About 1,400 studies were reviewed and, finally, more than 300
recent studies, mainly European, were registered. The studies,
the valuation method used, the main author and the country of
the “study site”, can be searched through a user-friendly environment. The database includes a tool for adjusting the transferred values in order to offset influences concerning differences of price level and time between the “study” and the “policy” site. Thus, EAERE members and other environmental valuation experts are mostly welcome to submit studies to be included in GEVAD through the “Submit a study”page.
In addition, they are encouraged to send their comments at email@example.com.

IIED was launched in 1971 by renowned economist and policy advisor Barbara Ward, making it one of the very first organisations to link environment with development. As an independent international research organisation, we are specialists in linking local to global. In Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Central and South America, the Middle East and the Pacific, we work with some of the world's most vulnerable people to ensure they have a say in the policy arenas that most closely affect them — from village councils to international conventions. Through close collaboration with partners at the grassroots, we make our research and advocacy relevant to their needs. We advise governments, business and international development agencies and publish widely. Our website provides an
on-line resource database of over 4,000 items, most of which are free to download at www.iied.org/pubs.
