The CAIT Indonesia Climate Data Explorer / Platform Interaktif untuk Data Iklim (PINDAI) presents Indonesia’s climate data and information at the provincial level, including historical and projected emissions profiles, climate commitments and development plans.
Advancing the Key Elements of the Paris Agreement
The Paris Agreement is a hugely significant step towards reaching a zero-carbon and resilient world. But challenges remain if we are to limit temperature rise and increase capacity to adapt to climate impacts. Those challenges include: the alignment of financial flows towards zero-carbon and...
This fact sheet examines how Wisconsin can use its existing policies and infrastructure to meet its emission standards under the Clean Power Plan while minimizing compliance costs, ensuring reliability, and harnessing economic opportunities. Read about additional analyses in WRI's fact sheet...
Eight Actions for Urban Leaders
Earth Day 2016 was a momentous celebration of international climate policy, as 175 countries -- a record number of signers of an international agreement on a single day -- signed the Paris Agreement. So what steps do we need to take to keep that momentum going -- and accelerate it -- over the coming months and years? Let's start with three key tasks for this year.

While a carbon tax has attracted little attention in the U.S. media before the primary debate last week, WRI research shows it's a policy that can reduce emissions in cost-effective, pro-growth and equitable ways. In fact, some 40 countries and more than 20 cities, states and regions have or are planning on putting carbon prices in place.
Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil's sixth-largest state and a major agricultural producer, recently committed to go carbon-neutral. The initiative will help the country meet its national and international goals to reduce its overall emissions 37 percent below 2005 levels by 2025.
New WRI research comparing high-carbon and low-carbon investment in transportation shows that the low-carbon path offers potential savings of $300 billion a year and is within existing financial flows.
This working paper seeks to elucidate the current estimates for transport infrastructure requirements, looking at a series of reports that consider projected global infrastructure needs in the coming few decades, and provide or quote a cost estimate for these needs.
