Canadian Biodiversity Information Network  Site Reviews(0)
Welcome to the Canadian Biodiversity Information Network (CBIN): Canada's node in the International Clearing-house Mechanism (CHM) of the Convention on Biological Diversity. The site, which is coordinated and maintained by the Biodiversity Convention Office of Environment Canada, covers the latest developments under the UN Convention on Biological Diversity and information on implementing the Convention in Canada through the Canadian Biodiversity Strategy. It also provides efficient access, through the search icon, to biodiversity-related information from academia, industry, non-governmental organizations, and governments, on topics such as Canadian environmental activities, agreements, technologies, expertise and much more. If you are simply curious, the site also includes a few amazing biodiversity facts. The United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity was negotiated in response to the world-wide loss of biodiversity, one of the most significant threats facing the global environment. It was opened for signature at the United Nations Conference on the Environment and Development (UNCED) in June 1992. Canada signed the Convention at that time and, in December 1992, was the first industrialised country to ratify it. The Convention came into force on December 29, 1993; to date, 188 countries have become Parties. Canadian focal points have been designated for a number of issues covered under the Convention, including the Global Taxonomy Initiative, Access and Benefit Sharing of Genetic Resources, and the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety.

Climate Change  Site Reviews(0)
Established as part of the United Nations Environment Network, this area of their site serves as a portal for resources that deal specifically with climate change. First-time visitors will want to cast a glance on the left- hand side of the homepage, as the whole topic of climate change and global warming can be a bit daunting, to say the least. Here they will find a *Key Issues* area which offers a set of resources that provide introductions to the topic, along with sections on the overall environmental, social, and economic implications of climate change. The *Featured Resources* area of the site will be of great interest to educators, as it includes a *do-it- yourself* climate model program that could be used in the classroom and a series of greenhouse gas emission graphs.
