Abstract:
EarthTrends is an online collection of information regarding the environmental, social, and economic trends that shape our world. Committed to the principle that accurate information drives responsible decisions by governments and individuals, EarthTrends offers the public a large breadth of statistical, graphic, and analytical data in easily accessible formats. Much of the environmental information on the internet is fragmented, buried, or only available at a price. EarthTrends gathers data from the world's leading statistical agencies, along with WRI-generated maps and analyses, into a single database for rapid searching and retrieving. To facilitate the comparison of data from different sources, EarthTrends supplements its content with detailed metadata that reports on research methodologies and evaluates the information's reliability. All of these resources are made available to the public at no charge. Our users range from individuals who influence environmental policy whether in governments, academia, corporations, think-tanks, or other civil society groups to educators, students, and the public at large. To meet their diverse needs, we present information in multiple formats and differing levels of complexity. Topic areas covered include: - Coastal and Marine Ecosystems - Water Resources and Freshwater Ecosystems - Atmosphere and Climate - Population, Health, and Human Well-Being - Economics, Business, and the Environment - Energy and Resources - Biodiversity and Protected Areas - Agriculture and Food - Forests, Grasslands and Drylands - Environmental Governance and Institutions [Summary provided by WRI]
