The goals of the World Resources Institute (WRI) are to reverse existing environmental problems and avert future ones, foster active public and private involvement, and make environmental improvement compatible with economic growth. Their Website contains countless documents sorted by (worldwide) geographic location as well as subject area, including sustainable development, biodiversity, climate change, forests, governance, oceans and coasts, and trade. The site also features a news center with news releases, facts and figures, and audio reports (RealAudio); a Library and Information Center with full-text searchable postings of all WRI publications; and a Sustainable Development Information Center with data, maps, facts, and sustainable development publications. This comprehensive site goes beyond the surface of environmental issues facing much of the world today.
