The website states, "The Climate 1-Stop provides a single location to access proven climate change tools, resources and information. With a primary focus on adaptation, with clear linkages to mitigation and finance, the Climate 1-Stop facilitates those working with the world's most vulnerable to achieve robust decision making.”
The new website is found at "Climate 1 Stop."
It adds, “We are a neutral group of southern and northern organizations, working at all levels, from grass roots to global. We envision a just and equitable world, where learning and collaboration overcome climate change barriers to development. To that end, we seek to build climate resilience in all sectors. We are open to all and driven by user needs."
According to the 12-11-2009 NASA article “Unique ‘Climate One Stop’ Web Site Unveiled in Copenhagen,” Dan Irwin of the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center (Huntsville, Alabama) states, "It's a 'calm spot' where scientists, decision-makers, nonprofit workers, and officials can find all the latest research. We unveiled the site at this week's United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen."
A group of organizations from around the world organized the website.
They include such organizations as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Science Foundation (NSF), the University of Alabama at Huntsville (UAH), the Institute for the Application of Geospatial Technology (IAGT), The Water Center for the Humid Tropics of Latin America and The Caribbean (CATHALAC), and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).

Jessica Couglin, of the IAGT, stated, "Right now, there's so much climate information scattered out there -- it’s a real challenge to find exactly what you're looking for by just Googling it. Climate One-Stop is the place to go for all the information." [NASA]
Coughlin adds, “One-Stop's potential benefits are enormous. It could have dramatic effects within the climate change and decision-making communities."
Irwin concludes the NASA article with: "It's a great way for developed and developing countries to share their knowledge and information about climate change."
"From space, NASA's Apollo astronauts saw Earth as a unified whole with no boundaries. Climate One-Stop will help that become a reality, in a sense."
"We'll all be able to work together as a global community."
