Database

An easy accessible database for papers, reports, and projects

Many researchers, educators and civil society advocates and practitioners working on sustainable production and consumption do not have access to the new and important information generated on this topic. In some cases the obstacle is commercial copyright protection, lack of bridges among specialized knowledge communities, or simply lack of a central known location for posting information and sources for a broader audience. Nonprofit organizations around the world addressing huge social problems with small budgets are too often excluded from the knowledge they need. A partnership among organizations and agencies could help bridge this gap.

Activities

  • Create a website where researchers and practitioners can directly access or register for access to information resources for free or discounted access to online research publications.
  • Develop agreements and partnerships among academic and research institutions, publishers, libraries, UN agencies, and other knowledge providers to help design and maintain this clearinghouse function.
  • Negotiate contracts with relevant publishers.
  • Monitor and post news about studies, reports, books, and conferences on SPAC.
