This module investigates national and sub-national climate action data as a critical tool to increase climate factors while supporting the expansion and ambition of mitigation and adaptation efforts.
Climate action is understood as the efforts to reduce climate-induced impacts and strengthen adaptive capacity. Governments can also use this module to help align their climate action data, and consequently, efforts across regions and countries, which may allow them to more easily and successfully achieve nationally determined contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement. This module’s data may also usefully inform climate finance efforts; more particularly, climate vulnerability data can help direct climate finance both to areas where resources are urgently needed for mitigation and adaptation and to areas where a lack of data itself may indicate help is needed for better preparedness.
The methodology and data collection processes of this first pilot edition of the Global Data Barometer will be assessed and reviewed for the next edition.
Data analysis does not necessarily represent the views, positions or opinions of the individual partner organizations, and any errors or omissions are the sole responsibility of the Global Data Barometer project.
