Our Annual Report 2019 looks back at how our work reflected and fed into the global priorities in areas of advancing climate science.
Climate Analytics was formed in 2008 to bring cutting edge science and policy analysis to bear on one of the most pressing global problems of our time: human-induced climate change. As the urgency of this problem has grown, so have we. Our team of about 100 counts 32 different nationalities working at our offices in Togo, USA, Australia and Germany, as well in a diverse set of countries including the Bahamas, Nepal, Bhutan, Burkina Faso, Samoa, Trinidad and Tobago 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.
Mission and Vision
Synthesise and advance scientific knowledge in the area of climate change and on this basis provide support and capacity building to stakeholders. By linking scientific and policy analysis, we provide state-of-the-art solutions to global and national climate change policy challenges.
Supporting science-based policy to prevent dangerous climate change to enable sustainable development.
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 New York 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 Lomé office focuses on climate science and governance issues relating to Least Developed Countries (LDCs).
Our office in Australia 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.
