Yearbook of International Co-operation on Environment and Development (YBICED)

The Yearbook of International Co-operation on Environment and Development was an independent annual publication edited by FNI 1992-2004. The Yearbook's objective was to demonstrate the international community's positions on specific environment and development problems, to show the main obstacles to effective international solutions, and to analyze how they could be overcome. It assessed the achievements and shortcomings of international co-operation.

The Yearbook had two principal sections:
   A database section with updated factual information about the most important agreements, IGOs and NGOs of international environmental cooperation.
   An analysis section with evaluation articles of various aspects, instruments and organizations of international environmental cooperation.

The Yearbook first appeared in 1992 in connection with the Rio Conference, and was until 1997 known as the Green Globe Yearbook. The 11th and last edition was released in October 2003. Beginning in 1995, several of the editions have also been released in Chinese translation.

The Yearbook's evaluation articles (1994-2003/2004) of various aspects, instruments and organizations of international environmental cooperation kan be found here.
