  • searchable index of report titles (contents)

This guide is intended for an in-depth study of the report. If you are interested in the basic findings the Summary for the policymakers of the Synthesis Report is more suitable for you.

The environmental law section of Zvon.org contains fully indexed texts of several relevant international documents including The Framework Convention on Climate Change and Kyoto Protocol.

The work on this guide has been started by Radka Hrotkova (my MSc. student at Laboratory of Informatics and Chemistry). She succesfully completed her studies in 2010 but still contributes to this work.
