The links above show only those items available at SCSU or online. To see items at the other CSCU Libraries, change the drop down on the results pages from 'Southern Connecticut State University' to 'CSCU Library Consortium'.

A wealth of data is available from the UN and related organizations. In many cases, actual data sets are available for download, as well as reports and interpretations.
Just enter a country name to do a search; "climate change" is already included by default. You can add additional terms and modify the search after reviewing the initial results.
JSTOR is a unique article database that includes journals going back to the 1600s. You can search for historical articles on your countries by adding the country name and a word or phrase for your topic, such as 'South Africa water'.
Remember that many countries have changed their names over the years, and that phrases such as 'climate change' have only been in use for a few decades.
