How to use the INFOTERRA Mailing List

UNEP The United Nations Environment Programme's Infoterra subscription list is a public list intended for exchanging information on environmental topics; posing queries to the Infoterra network; requesting information from UNEP; and raising environmental awareness in general.

Subscription to this list is open. In addition to posing queries, subscribers are encouraged to respond to queries as well, since this list will ultimately be comprised of both sources and users of environmental information on a global basis. Subscribers may also post announcements of new publications, gophers, lists, information services, etc., and upcoming meetings, seminars, training courses, etc., which are of general environmental interest. Contributions from UNEP partners in the UN Common System, IGO/NGO community and governmental sector are particularly welcome.
