Publication information

The aim of the quarterly bulletin, Tiempo, is to promote communication between the nations of the North and South on the issue of climate change, to promote the interests of developing nations in the climate debate and to provide authoritative and timely information on relevant scientific, technical and policy matters.

In the words of the first editorial:

" be effective, the flow of information [on climate change] must be in both directions. It is self-evident that the developing world must have access to timely and relevant information but it is equally important that the industrialized nations be fully aware of the particular knowledge, aspirations and perspectives of the South. It is hoped that the bulletin will provide a lively forum for debate as well as being a valuable source of information."

The bulletin is published by the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED, London, UK) and the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia (UEA, Norwich, UK), with financial support from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency in association with the Stockholm Environment Institute as part of the Atmospheric Environment Issues in Developing Countries Programme.

The editorial team consists of Sarah Granich, Mick Kelly and Richard Sandbrook.
