May 16, 2017 in Conferences, News by Oscar Widerberg

During the first week of the UNFCCC’s preparatory meeting (SB46) in Bonn, CONNECT’s home institution, the Institute for Environmental Studies (IVM) at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam,  held a side-event on “New Approaches for Analyzing and Visualizing the Integrity of the Global Climate Governance Regime”. IVM organized the event together with the University of Melbourne which included speakers from Transparency International, Griffith’s University, and the Austrian Federal Environment Agency.

IVM’s Oscar Widerberg gave a sneak peek of a new website called Connect-It that the Environmental Policy Analysis department at IVM is working on. It visualizes data on climate actions by companies, cities, regions, investors and civil society organizations, in a new and exciting way.

Stay tuned for more exciting news about Connect-It!
