Arend Kuster, Managing Director said, “We are proud to support the COP process with this collection as our commitment to providing additional information, and by making this content available Open Access contributes to the transparency of research.  The collection contains key research articles tackling adaptation and mitigation, and the use of technology.  We are also excited to be part of the Qatar Sustainability Network and will be actively participating in COP18.”
The collection is searchable by subject, publication title, topic, author or keywords on QScience.com and is the most comprehensive online collection for COP 18.
