From nation to city-level emissions, measuring adaptation vs. mitigation, tracking climate finance from the public and private sectors, understanding worldwide climate objectives and the action required to meet them calls for a wealth of info. Information exists for several elements of climate modify, but with hundreds of platforms and numerous datasets, it can be challenging to distinguish the very best info for a unique will need, or to uncover exactly where information gaps exist.

This interactive visual shows a matrix of much more than 80 big climate information platforms, displayed by subject (x-axis) and geographic level/scale (y-axis). Customers can also view this information as a filterable table or download it straight.

Possible use situations consist of:

  • Climate information analysts can uncover the most relevant platform for their certain subject and the level at which they operate.
  • Funders and information creators can pinpoint information gaps, verify if there are current platforms on a topic to stay away from redundancy of new operate, or leverage synergies by developing on current operate.
  • City planners can uncover information on peer cities’ emissions and climate actions, as nicely as how these actions may well relate to national-level targets.
  • Selection makers hunting for certain information on policy, finance or other subjects can uncover relevant information for numerous scales, comparing policy or investment from numerous cities, nations or regions.

Some of the notable patterns discovered in curating this dataset consist of: an overarching concentrate on mitigation, power and nation-level information a lot of platforms showcasing related datasets and a common lack of upkeep, even on cautiously constructed datasets. These all underscore a clear will need to enhance the world’s climate-associated information infrastructure.
