Countries urgently need to increase funding for the Green Climate Fund (GCF) to ensure it delivers predictable support for advancing climate action in developing countries. How much should each country give? This calculator allows you to explore potential divisions of financial contributions, using objective data.
Water stress at shale plays around the world. 20 labeled countries have the world’s largest technically recoverable shale gas resources. Circle color indicates average water stress level across a country’s shale plays—circle size indicates overall volume of recoverable shale gas resources.
This video illustrates Katari community farmers who rely on community land rights, and the challenges faced by governments who don't always back them up with legislation.
Securing community land rights help maintain healthier forests and lower CO2 emissions from deforestation and forest degradation.
This infographic, based on IPCC data, depicts the likely consequences of various emissions pathways ranging from a low-carbon future to a fossil fuel-intensive one.

For the top 10 US state emitters, shown in this graph, the results are varied.
This CAIT 2.0 project graph reveals 2010 data of power plant capacity by initial year of operation.
Cutting power sector emissions is not new at the state level. According to the 2011 U.S. data available through CAIT 2.0, 42 states reduced their emissions relative to 2005, the baseline used in the U.S. GHG reduction pledge.
The power sector comprises the largest share of U.S. GHG emissions, contributing nearly one-third of all emissions from all sectors.
