As part of its continuing efforts to raise global awareness of the effects of climate change, UNEP prepared the Global Outlook for Ice and Snow at the outset of the International Polar Year 2007-2008. This new analysis focuses on the changes in ice-and-snow covered regions and highlights consequences for the global community.
Global Outlook for Ice and Snow provides an up-to-date, concise review of the state of the environment and the trends in ice and snow-covered regions (cryosphere) of the world. It features case studies, illustrations, graphics and maps and serves as an educational and reference publication. With a broad target audience that includes decision-makers at many levels, the report looks at the significance of changes in the cryosphere to human well-being and the implications for policy.
The assessment is written by teams of experts from many disciplines and many countries. Leading research organizations were involved in preparing and reviewing this unique report.
