Open data and tools for climate policy and law research
We are on a mission to map and analyse the global climate law and policy landscape to help drive the transition to a low-carbon, resilient and just world
The need for informed climate change policymaking
Laws and policies are essential to slashing global emissions, building climate-resilient, adaptive communities and economies, and accounting for loss and damage from climate impacts.
Yet data on existing climate policies and laws are currently hard to find and analyse. Documents and data are spread across diffuse resources in different languages, in inconsistent formats. This makes it difficult to learn from successes and mistakes and to develop ambitious ways forward.
We are working to open up and make sense of that data to support informed policymaking, track progress and model policy risk. Use our open data tools for:
Carry out deep dives into a wide range of areas, assess policy options and identify best practices.
Track global action and progress towards meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement.
Assess policy choices, draw attention to insufficient action, and advocate for alternatives.
Build law and policy metrics into risk models, and gain a better understanding of the regulatory environment.
We use data science and artificial intelligence to map and analyse the world's climate change policies and laws, supporting a deep understanding of what works, where, and for whom.
By turning documents into searchable, accessible and useful information, our work aims to advance global research efforts to understand the effectiveness of climate laws, policies and litigation.What we do
