WRI’s CAIT project provides comprehensive and comparable databases of greenhouse gas inventories and other climate-relevant data, analysis tools, and dynamic maps.
The Climate Analysis Indicators Tool (CAIT) website is offline.
The Climate Analysis Indicators Tool (CAIT) by WRI is a set of comprehensive and comparable greenhouse gas inventories, together with other climate-relevant indicators. CAIT can be used to analyze a wide range of climate-related data questions and help support policy decision making and discussions under the Climate Convention and in other forums.
CAIT was last updated in May 2012. The site now includes data through 2008 in our International and U.S. data sets, and through 2009 in our UNFCCC data set. Read on for more about the emissions, energy, economic, and other information available, or visit CAIT to see the latest data.
- CAIT International includes comprehensive socio-economic and natural resource indicators, together with the most complete set of international GHG inventories available, compiled from internationally recognized agencies.
- CAIT UNFCCC provides similar capabilities using inventories submitted by countries to the UNFCCC Secretariat in their National Communications.
- CAIT V&A features indicators and analysis tools designed to inform policy discussions concerning vulnerability and adaptive capacity.
- CAIT-U.S. provides U.S. state-level GHG inventories and indicators for state-level climate policy analysis.
WRI believes that obtaining relevant, accurate and objective data is an essential component of sound decision making and policy development. CAIT’s primary purpose is to provide high-quality information accessible through easy-to-use yet powerful and transparent analysis tools, to support the many dimenions of climate change policy.
