SEDAC's new interface for the Environmental Treaties and Resource Indicators (ENTRI) database and a new prototype SEDAC Data Viewer have just been released. These interfaces provide more flexible access to selected SEDAC datasets related to international environmental treaties and other topics.
We encourage you to try out these new interfaces and to provide feedback!
Welcome to ENTRIWelcome to ENTRI, a fast, convenient, comprehensive online search service for finding information about environmental treaties and national resource indicators. The ENTRI system is unique in allowing you to construct queries that integrate these different types of data.
The ENTRI system is organized around a set of nine specific "issue areas" that are widely recognized by scholars and policymakers as being critical to understanding the human dimensions of global change. The ENTRI Thematic Guide provides some introductory thoughts on how (and why) to use disparate types of data (including remotely sensed data) to understand these complex, multi-dimensional issues.
ENTRI is a highly collaborative project that draws heavily upon the contributions and expertise of cooperating institutions.
For an overview of the ENTRI web space please consult the Table of Contents.

Information in ENTRIRemote Sensing and Environmental Treaties: Building More Effective Linkages workshop proceedings are now available.
ENTRI Remote Sensing Image Gallery provides online images with descriptive information and links to relevant environmental treaties.
The basic questions help users to access treaty status and indicator data.

If you have questions or need assistance using ENTRI visit SEDAC's user assistance page.
You can search the ENTRI relational database via a set of basic questions pertaining to international environmental agreements.
You can also perform free text searches across the collections of treaty information residing at CIESIN:
You can explore the WRI national resource indicator data in the World Resources 1996-1997 Data Query page. It presents an alternate view of the data contained in the indicators section of ENTRI, accessible via basic questions above. Whereas ENTRI organizes the data by issue areas and in relation to treaty status data, the WRI data query page presents the data according to the same logical structure as the WRI book and is not integrated with treaty status data.
You may also explore ENTRI data by browsing:ENTRI Thematic Guide, which provides an issue-oriented view of the relation between treaties and national resource indicators.
