- To provide information on the status of country participation in international environmental agreements.
- The Environmental Treaty Status Data Set, 2012 Release contains comprehensive information on country participation in multilateral environmental agreements through August 2012. The data were produced by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) Environmental Law Center for use in the ECOLEX gateway to environmental law web service. The Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN) at Columbia University developed an interactive online tool that enables the users to query the data and create matrices describing multi-country participation in sets of treaties, as well as to download the results.
