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 calls for a wealth of info. Information exists for quite a few elements of climate alter, but with hundreds of platforms and numerous datasets, it can be hard to distinguish the very best info for a specific require, or to uncover exactly where information gaps exist.

This interactive visual shows a matrix of a lot 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.

Prospective use situations involve:

  • Climate information analysts can uncover the most relevant platform for their precise 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 prevent redundancy of new operate, or leverage synergies by creating on current operate.
  • City planners can uncover information on peer cities’ emissions and climate actions, as properly as how these actions could relate to national-level targets.
  • Choice makers seeking for precise information on policy, finance or other subjects can uncover relevant information for a variety of scales, comparing policy or investment from a variety of cities, nations or regions.

Some of the notable patterns located in curating this dataset involve: an overarching concentrate on mitigation, power and nation-level information many platforms showcasing comparable datasets and a basic lack of upkeep, even on very carefully constructed datasets. These all underscore a clear require to enhance the world’s climate-connected information infrastructure.

This Information Visualization is element of our Climate Plan. Attain out to Irene Berman-Vaporis for a lot more info.
