The Hard Rain Picture Library presents a wide selection of images illustrating social and environmental issues and nature. The initial selection of images is drawn from the UNEP picture archive, and images are available for UNEP and UN staff to download for a small fee. The library will be expanded in the near future, and available to all, and we are seeking funding to allow free downloads for educational use.
