Support for Earth Negotiations Bulletin

Description

The mission of the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) established in 1990 is to promote sustainable development in decision-making. The IISD contributes new knowledge and concepts, analyze policies, identify and disseminate information about best practices, demonstrate how to measure progress, and build partnerships to amplify these messages. The IISD publication the Earth Negotiations Bulletin (ENB, published since 1992) fills a critical need to increase transparency and accountability in multilateral environmental treaty negotiations by bringing real-time information to decision makers in a publicly accessible format. The ENB is a reporting service for environment and sustainable development negotiations. It is the main source of information for many parties, especially developing country parties. The production of the ENB is supported by contributions from governments, United Nations agencies and private organizations. Finland has supported the publication of the ENB since 2008. Since the ENB is considerd important source of information especially for the developing countries the level of support has been raised a bit during these years. Now support will be provided in total 140 000 euros for the years 2014-2015.
