Data is a fundamental building block of climate action. The availability and use of coherent climate change data are crucial to help countries to mitigate the effects of climate change and societies to adapt.

When used and shared effectively, climate change data can help to better monitor and anticipate to climate changes and ultimately report on international commitments to guide decision makers to build long-term responses to climate change impacts.

PARIS21 is helping countries to develop their capacities to improve national climate change data ecosystems, where policy makers, government agencies, climate experts, the private sector and other actors can work across data silos and use data to address all aspects of the climate crisis.
