Activities

Climate Analytics is a non-profit organization based in Berlin which brings together interdisciplinary expertise in the scientific and policy aspects of climate change.  Its mission is to develop and support science-based policy to prevent dangerous climate change and thereby enable sustainable development.  Its activities include: synthesizing and advancing scientific knowledge in the area of climate change science, policy and impacts; providing science and policy support to the Least Developed Countries and Small Island Developing States in international climate negotiations, and the tracking and analysing the effectiveness of national climate policies globally with the Climate Action Tracker.

Science and Impacts Analysis

We work to synthesize and advance scientific knowledge in the area of climate change science, policy and impacts to make it easily accessible for stakeholders in the international climate change arena. This includes conducting our own research (for example, to evaluate the uncertainties in climate science associated with potential mitigation pathways, project sea-level rise or evaluate impacts and risks at different levels of warming) as well as bringing together and communicating the findings of the available scientific literature and providing the context needed to understand their implications.

Negotiating Support

We provide scientific, policy and analytical support to assist Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and Least Developed Countries (LDCs) in the UNFCCC, Green Climate Fund and related climate negotiations and fora.  Based on the latest science, we  provide on-demand technical, political, strategic and legal briefings and advice to negotiators, with the aim of supporting the establishment of an effective and legally binding multilateral climate regime.  We also support other stakeholders, including international organizations, governments and NGOs.

Climate Policy Analysis

We assess the effectiveness of international strategies and national climate policies, including low carbon development plans, in meeting global climate goals and reducing greenhouse gas emissions whilst meeting sustainable development goals.  We analyze the effectiveness of mitigation pledges made in the UNFCCC process, as well as national policies aimed at mitigation. Our findings are made publically available, which is intended to increase transparency and to encourage countries to make pledges, if they have not yet done so, or to increase their level of national action.

Capacity Building

Climate Analytics aims at strengthening the capacity of negotiators and policy-makers from Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and Small Island Developing States (SIDS) to engage in the international climate negotiations and to advocate for a strong global climate regime. Briefings, workshops and training are provided to negotiators.

Climate Finance

Climate Analytics is closely following the development of a new institutional architecture for climate finance that was launched by the international community in 2010. With on-demand background analysis and real-time technical advice, we assist delegations from countries most vulnerable to climate change in their efforts to implement an institutional architecture that is responsive to their needs and circumstances.

Adaptation

We are working with developing countries that are particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change to identify, formulate and implement integrated national adaptation strategies. In close cooperation with local officials and other relevant stakeholders and partners, Climate Analytics has conducted appraisal missions and developed project concepts and proposals for bilateral projects financed through the German government’s International Climate Initiative.
