Some time ago me and my colleague Marianne Fernagut prepared a survey on the use of graphics (charts, maps, diagrams) to communicate environment and sustainable development. It has taken us a long time to summarize the results and responses that we got, but it is finally done! We still believe that the results are relevant, even though time has passed.

The results have now been published in a short report, and they provide an interesting picture of these users' needs and capabilities in terms of preparing illustrations and using graphics for the communication of information related to climate change, environmental issues and sustainable development.

We received more than 300 responses to the survey, and the results have been summarized in an 18-page report.

Apologies for the delay, and a big thanks for everyone that responded!
