Climate Databases

Having been developed in some cases over more than 10 years, IGES Climate Databases compile unique data about climate change policies and sustainable development projects, and offer in-depth insights through analytics, summary and figures. The Databases are developed and updated by IGES researchers and analysts on a regular basis. The frequency of updates depends on the level of priority of each Database in its global context. We strive to provide added-value in connection with other activities of IGES, and base our product development and maintenance strategy on the principles of reliability, transparency and timeliness.
