From nation to city-level emissions, measuring adaptation vs. mitigation, tracking climate finance from the public and private sectors, understanding worldwide climate targets and the action necessary to meet them calls for a wealth of information and facts. Information exists for numerous elements of climate adjust, but with hundreds of platforms and numerous datasets, it can be tough to distinguish the finest information and facts for a unique have to have, or to come across exactly where information gaps exist.
This interactive visual shows a matrix of far more than 80 significant 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 include things like:
- Climate information analysts can come across the most relevant platform for their precise 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 come across information on peer cities’ emissions and climate actions, as nicely as how these actions could possibly relate to national-level targets.
- Selection makers hunting for precise information on policy, finance or other subjects can come across relevant information for several scales, comparing policy or investment from several cities, nations or regions.
Some of the notable patterns located in curating this dataset include things like: an overarching concentrate on mitigation, power and nation-level information many platforms showcasing equivalent datasets and a basic lack of upkeep, even on cautiously constructed datasets. These all underscore a clear have to have to boost the world’s climate-associated information infrastructure.
This Information Visualization is aspect of our Climate System. Attain out to Irene Berman-Vaporis for far more information and facts.
