NOAA offers portal to collaborate on environmental databases

I'll be blogging from the CALI conference in Las Vegas for the next couple of days.

The new portal, called, is a collaborative effort by agencies, academia, NGOs and private organizations to provide a credible online portal of information and tools related to the human dimensions of natural resource management. Included on the site is a “Laws and Policies” section that provides annotated links to databases of laws and policies related to natural resource management.
