This paper provides an overview of the concept of direct access to funding for climate change actions in developing countries.

Much research has now been conducted into the representation of climate change in the media. Specifically, the communication of climate change from scientists and policy-makers to the public via the mass media has been a subject of major interest because of its implications for creating national variation in public understanding of a global environmental issue.

This report contains separate assessments of climate policy in twelve of the major GHG emitting countries, covering government policy on mitigation, adaptation, technology transfer, and land use policies. The assessments cover the policy developments between 1st November 2008 and 20thFebruary 2009.
