The Climate Chance online library is a tool available to everybody who is interested in climate action at the local level.

Containing a diversity of resources (official UNFCCC texts, non-state actors’ declarations, briefing papers, as well as key reports), the online library aims to become an information hub about climate non-state action, through the dissemination of official texts and declarations, as well as briefing papers and multimedia resources.

The purpose of the library is also to be a real working instrument destined to those actors, through the diffusion of thematic reports (water, transport, housing, energy…) as well as informative documents in order to improve the understanding of the issue of climate change.
