Resource Watch

Resource Watch "provides trusted and timely data for a sustainable future," by compiling global environmental information formatted for a variety of audiences. Readers may want to start on the About page. Scrolling to the bottom, Research Watch suggests what each audience can rely on the website for. For instance, journalists can use it to "access trustworthy data to discover new insights and inform stories," while citizens may use it to "share your findings to inspire action and hold decision-makers accountable." On the Data page, users can explore maps and datasets that compile information on topics such as "Employment in Agriculture" and "Volcanic Eruptions." They can also navigate the "Near Real-Time Data" tool, where users can select a variety of humanitarian and environmental issues and see their effects displayed on an interactive globe. On the Dashboards page, users will find several different subjects, such as Cities and Ocean. After selecting a subject that piques interest, readers are led to a curated resource collection focused on that topic. The Blog page spotlights stories focused on subjects ranging from climate events to global equality. Finally, under Get Involved visitors can suggest a story or dataset and subscribe to Resource Watch's newsletter. Resource Watch is a branch of World Resources Institute and is made possible through a "global partnership of public, private, and civil society organizations."

Does anyone proof read these articles before they are published? The grammar is horrible: "Research Watch suggests what each audience can rely on the website for."
