The issue of climate change has generated an enormous amount of information - and, worryingly, disinformation. SW4CA aims to provide links to credible, evidence-based information relevant for social workers and their allies. This page contains links to recent reports from national and international bodies, institutions and organisations that provide a strong evidence base for the impacts of anthropogenic climate change. This list of important reports will be updated as new resources become available. The page also contains links to credible media news reports of issues relating to climate change and its human impacts, and to longer form analysis of issues relevant to climate change and social work.
