Future of Climate Action Data from Cities, Regions, Businesses, and Investors


In COP25, Camda and its multi-stakeholder community set out a declaration for rigorously tracking progress and accountability of non-state actor climate pledges. While the aim is clear, the Climate Data 2.0 initiative will tackle HOW this progress and accountability can be developed under an integrated and trusted system using cutting edge data methodologies.

Activities & Outputs

Climate Action Data 2.0 (CAD2.0) is an umbrella community that aims to collectively pursue the following:

  • Collaborate across key organizations and individuals working in existing data disclosure platforms and emerging platforms on blockchain, satellite imagery, AI, and other relevant new technologies in the climate action data and analysis space.

  • Co-define strategic objectives and milestones with workstream participants that may include working toward supporting key products or moments within the UNFCCC process such as the Global Climate Action portal (NAZCA), Global Stocktake, COP, and/or efforts led by other organizations.

  • Contextualize outputs and strategies into a shared narrative and a common declaration of CAD2.0 objectives for 2021 and beyond.

  • Publicly launch the CAD2.0 collaboration at Climate Week NY and make a declaration from the consortium at COP26 on how to improve data capture and data quality over time.

  • Produce a report or presentation to communicate initial findings and developments of CAD2.0 by December 2021 to inform a diverse set of stakeholders, including, but not limited to, the philanthropic community.
