Environmental damage is incalculable, but still must be documented. We have compiled a publicly available metadatabase of environmental information sources for use in times of war. The “List of Information Centers and Monitoring Tools” includes links to monitoring tools, databases, and knowledge bases accumulating information directly relevant to the war’s environmental consequences. The list includes data collection efforts with the following focus: 1) current information on environmental aspects of the war, 2) sources of essential environmental data relevant in times of war and peace, 3) projects monitoring war damage to people and recovery efforts, 4) key relevant sources about non-environmental aspects of war, 5) older robust data collections directly relevant to the subject. As of May 2023 the list includes more than 50 datasets. The UWEC Work Group will add new items as it becomes aware of their existence.
We collected sources of information in one table (opens in new window):
