Tools

We produce a number of open access, user-friendly and interactive tools that make climate projections easily available to policy makers and researchers dealing with climate related questions in fields such as agriculture, energy and human health. These can be accessed by clicking on the links below.

The Lowdown on Coal

The Lowdown on Coal

This interactive tool shows you how much coal capacity a given country has at the moment, and how much is under construction already as what further additions are planned or announced, as well as the amount of current and future carbon pollution from these plants.  
Costs of inaction

Costs of inaction

The current round of national emission reduction pledges (Nationally Determined Contributions/NDCs) will lead to about 3°C of warming by the end of the century. This tool shows the additional economic damages Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and Least Developed Countries (LDCs) face in a 3°C world compared with 1.5°C, the limit set out in the Paris Agreement.  
Adaptation map

Adaptation map

The adaptation map provides an overview of adaptation actions in 11 countries in West Africa and the Member States of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) since 2010. Its main purpose is to act as a library, fostering inter-regional learning on adaptation action. The map includes policies, strategies, programs and projects. Adaptation actions are categorised by country (regional actions are also included) and by sector.  
Local Sea Level Rise

Local Sea Level Rise

Local SLR allows you to see how much sea levels are projected to rise around the globe at different levels of warming. The projections are available at the local level.  
Regio Clim

Regio Clim

RegioClim is an online tool that gives non-expert users simple access to regional climate projections for all African countries for five climate indicators: temperature, hot extremes, precipitation, wet extremes and 5-day wet extremes. Its key feature is the ability to access projections not just at the national but also at the province level.  
RegioCrop

RegioCrop

RegioCrop is an online tool that gives non-expert users simple access to crop yield projections for all African countries derived from state-of-the-art global crop models. This tool gives access to spatial patterns of relative change in crop yields at different levels of global average temperature warming and corresponding aggregated impacts at the country level for a selection of crops.  
Warming attribution calculation

Warming attribution calculation

This online tool is a resource for climate scientists which allows to relate climate impact studies to warming targets like 1.5°C and 2°C.
