Impact Assessment

Compact of States and Regions Analytics Tool

An online analytics tool that provides live tracking, analysis and forecasting of disclosed state and regional government mitigation targets.

The Compact of States and Regions Analytics Tool seeks to develop a dedicated state and regional climate reporting analytics tool, defined by increased supply of reliable emissions data from state and regional governments, and by an increasing demand from governments for sophisticated data analytics support to assist their policy decision-making, and improve emissions management.

This will be achieved through developing an online analytics suite comprising the world’s first public facing website that provides live tracking, analysis and forecasting of state and regional government mitigation targets disclosed through CDP.

The overarching aim of this project is to drive GHG emissions reductions through the development and disclosure of GHG emissions inventories and mitigation targets by state and regional governments. a public facing website to encourage states and regions to join the Compact and disclose their GHG emissions.

Compact aims and objectives

  • Development of a public facing website will encourage states and regions to join the Compact and disclose their GHG emissions.
  • Develop an online tool for analysis of disclosed emissions pathways to date and emission change since target baseline year.
  • Facilitate inventory development for states and regions.
  • Provide annually updated analysis of GHG emission disclosure and a library of mitigation/adaptation plans.

Partners

The project is led by CDP and implemented jointly with the Climate Group.
