“Human-induced climate change is causing dangerous and widespread disruption in nature and affecting the lives of billions of people around the world, despite efforts to reduce the risks. People and ecosystems least able to cope are being hardest hit,” according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s 2022 report. Data is a key tool in responding to the unavoidable climate hazards that our world is facing.
The Global Partnership’s work to increase the availability, use, and utility of data for climate focuses on three areas:
- Climate adaptation
- Economic transformation
- Data systems strengthening
Projects include providing support to countries to monitor environmental indicators (Senegal, Somalia, Togo, Ghana, and Suriname) and to address water insecurity and quality (Paraguay).
