When we started building Climate Policy Radar, we had lots of assumptions about who our users were and what solutions would help them. In this blog post, we’ll explain why we carry out user research, how we’ve done it so far, what we’re learning, and some of the improvements we’re making in response.
Climate Policy Radar’s search tool breaks a critical research barrier by enabling users to search non English law and policy documents, and see English translations of passages that match their search.
Welcome to Climate Policy Radar’s first newsletter! We have been busy over the last few months, and we have some exciting updates to share with you.
The first UN Climate Change Global Stocktake is a crucial opportunity for the world to come together and evaluate collective progress towards delivering the landmark Paris Agreement. But with over 170,000 pages of inputs submitted in a range of languages from across the world, understanding and synthesising the rich content within the inputs is a monumental task ahead of the conclusion of the Global Stocktake — only 6 months away, at the COP28 UAE climate summit in Dubai this December.
We've launched our upgraded version of the Climate Change Laws of the World database, offering new tools and features to make it easier to understand and analyse the global climate law and policy landscape.
Climate Policy Radar has been named among the world’s most promising projects harnessing artificial intelligence to advance the United Nations' sustainable development goals.
We're delighted to announce that Climate Policy Radar has been selected as one of the seven new organisations to join the Personio Foundation's 2023 Impact Portfolio.
We’re delighted to share the Climate Policy Radar Public Product Roadmap - sketching the steps we’re taking today to reach our (very) ambitious future goals.
We recently experimented with some common natural language processing techniques to turn laws and policies into timelines of the dates mentioned within them, a potentially efficient and powerful way to present key information from long law and policy documents.
We've partnered with The Climate Parliament to provide legislators and policymakers worldwide with data and knowledge resources to help advance timely, ambitious and effective climate action, and enhance their role in implementing the Paris Agreement.
The UK’s two largest steel manufacturers are reportedly set receive a total of £600 million to incentivise the decarbonisation of the sector. We explore how move speaks to the extent to which climate policies are interdependent on a global level.
Climate Policy Radar’s Peter Hooper tells us about work and life as a software engineer in climate change, and the opportunities for open source to propel technology development.
We teamed up with OpenAI for their first hackathon dedicated to climate change. Explore how teams came up with ideas to hack artificial intelligence for climate policy.
What’s it like to work in climate data science? Meet Climate Policy Radar data scientist Kalyan Dutia, who shares his love of linguistics, the opportunities and challenges of responsible artificial intelligence, and exciting developments in the field of machine learning for climate change.
We're developing a computer vision-based model that can automate the processing of PDFs. Find out how we're building it and its applications across climate policy and beyond.
Climate Policy Radar, the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at the London School of Economics, and the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia University have partnered to offer upgraded open data resources on global climate laws, policies and legal cases.
We’re headed to Egypt for the 27th United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP27 and related events - come and join us!
Our goal is to make it easier and faster to interrogate climate change laws and policies. This blog post details how and why we designed the search function of Climate Policy Radar's app the way we did, using natural language search.
Bella Grimsey joined CPR for a day of work experience, packed with policy, PDF parsing and planning.
Openness and transparency are the kingpins of Climate Policy Radar, which is why we’ve launched a public changelog so that anyone and everyone can follow what we’re doing in the climate tech space and the progress we’re making.
Climate Policy Radar has nabbed the spotlight in tech.eu, an online publication dedicated to European technology ecosystems.
We’re delighted to announce that we've released the first version of our first product, Climate Policy Radar (Alpha), allowing you to search through the full text of thousands of climate laws, policies and strategies worldwide.
We are delighted that Lisa Long has joined Climate Policy Radar board as a non-executive director.
Climate Policy Radar want to support the search for solutions to the crisis of plastic pollution, using our tool for searching across the full text of thousands of policy documents.
When I joined Climate Policy Radar back at the start of December last year, I knew pretty much nothing about tech products, natural language processing, data science, product management, or the tech startup world in general. With a PhD on international climate negotiations at the UNFCCC, and some time in DG CLIMA of the European Commission, my background is mostly in academia, with a little in the public sector.
We went to COP26 in Glasgow ready to share our work on our prototype, join conversations and learn from the wealth of knowledge and perspectives on offer there. Now back in the office and fired up from the experience, here’s what I gained from the summit.
We are excited to announce today that Climate Policy Radar is partnering with WORLD Policy Analysis Center.
We are going to Glasgow for COP26, and we'll be taking part in some exciting events and conversations about data, AI and evidence-based climate policy, sharing our vision and collecting inspiration, new ideas and allies..
Climate Policy Radar is a climate data start-up on a mission to map and analyse the climate policy landscape globally, to support evidence-based policymaking and investment to drive the transition to a low carbon, resilient world.
