Climate Tagger is a suite of tools to help knowledge-driven organizations in the climate and development arenas streamline and catalogue their data and information resources, and connect them to the wider climate knowledge community.
Climate Tagger was developed by REEEP in collaboration with the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s Open Energy Information program, the Stockholm Environment Institute’s weADAPT program and the Institute for Development Studies’ Eldis program, as part of the Climate Knowledge Brokers Group. Climate Tagger is made possible thanks to the generous financial support of a number of donors, including the Climate and Development Knowledge Network, the Federal Government of Germany and the Climate Technology Centre and Network of the United Nations Environment Programme.
Climate Tagger utilizes Linked Open Data, and is based on the tried-and-true reegle Tagging API (now Climate Tagger API), first introduced by REEEP in 2011 to help its network better catalogue and connect data, and backed by the expansive Climate Compatible Development Thesaurus, developed by experts in fields ranging from climate mitigation and adaptation to economy and green growth, and specific areas such as REDD+ (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation).
A collaboration between IRENA and REEEP in 2015/2016 resulted in the development of Renewables Tagger, a specialized version of Climate Tagger, developed and build for online resources about renewable energy technology, policies, markets and finance.
