Our latest annual report covers the period 2020-2021, looking back at how how our work fed into the global priorities in areas of climate science around the 1.5°C limit in the Paris Agreement, global decarbonisation, international climate negotiations and implementing climate action in vulnerable countries – small island developing states and least developed countries.
We are a global climate science and policy institute established in 2008 to bring cutting edge analysis to bear on the most pressing issue of our time – climate change.
As the urgency of this problem has grown, so have we. Our team of over 130 counts 32 different nationalities working at our offices in Togo, USA, Australia, Trinidad and Tobago, Nepal and Germany, as well in a diverse set of countries including the Bahamas, Bhutan, Burkina Faso, Samoa and the UK.
We are motivated by the desire to empower those most vulnerable – Small Island Developing States and Least Developed Countries – to use the best science and analysis available in the international climate negotiations, as well as developing policies and institutional capacity to adapt to climate change.
We undertake extensive research on the 1.5°C temperature limit in the Paris Agreement, and the risks and vulnerabilities these countries face. We also evaluate progress on climate action and show governments how they can act on their policies to keep global warming to this limit.
We want a climate-safe, sustainable and just future for all.
We deliver cutting-edge science, analysis and support to accelerate climate action to limit warming below 1.5°C. Our work empowers countries, communities and peoples on the frontlines of the climate crisis.

The headquarters of our organisation are located in Berlin, with over 40 employees. Most of our science and policy staff are based here and enjoy close working relationships with many European universities and institutes on joint projects.
Our North America branch, Climate Analytics Inc., established in 2013, provides scientiﬁc, technical, policy and legal support to our stakeholders – Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and Least Developed Countries (LDCs).
The Africa office focuses on climate science and governance issues relating to Least Developed Countries (LDCs).
Australia and Pacific
Our office in Australia and Pacific was established in 2017 to expand our work on international climate policy, focusing on the development of climate policy and energy transformation strategies in the Asia-Pacific Region.
Our Caribbean office was formed to support governments in the Caribbean region to translate negotiated outcomes from the UNFCCC into domestic laws, policies and governance arrangements.
Our South Asia office, Climate Analytics South Asia, was formally launched in 2022 to provide science-based policy and technical support to South Asian governments and stakeholders.
