From nation to city-level emissions, measuring adaptation vs. mitigation, tracking climate finance from the public and private sectors, understanding international climate objectives and the action required to meet them needs a wealth of facts. Information exists for quite a few elements of climate alter, but with hundreds of platforms and numerous datasets, it can be complicated to distinguish the finest facts for a unique need to have, or to locate exactly where information gaps exist.

This interactive visual shows a matrix of additional 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.

Prospective use circumstances contain:

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

Some of the notable patterns identified in curating this dataset contain: an overarching concentrate on mitigation, power and nation-level information a lot of platforms showcasing comparable datasets and a basic lack of upkeep, even on meticulously constructed datasets. These all underscore a clear need to have to boost the world’s climate-associated information infrastructure.
