About Climate Tagger

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 knowledgeClimate is typically defined as the average weather (or more rigorously a statistical description of the average in terms of the mean and variability) over a period of time, usually 30 years. These quantities are most often surface variables such as temperature, precipitation, and wind. Climate ... community.

Climate Tagger was developed by REEEP in collaboration with the US National Renewable EnergyRenewable energy is power generated from infinite sources, such as wind or solar power. Conventional energy is generated from finite sources, such as natural gas or fossil oil. 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 DevelopmentClimate compatible development is development that minimises the harm caused by climate impacts, while maximising the many human development opportunities presented by transitions to a low emissions, resilient future. Charting a path towards climate compatible development will be a major ... Thesaurus, developed by experts in fields ranging from climate mitigationMitigation refers to actions that reduce our contribution to the causes of climate change. This means reducing emissions of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide (CO2), through energy efficiency and using alternative forms of transport and energy.(UKCIP) and adaptationAdjustments in human and natural systems, in response to actual or expected climate stimuli or their effects, that moderate harm or exploit beneficial opportunities. (IPPC) to economy and green growthGreen growth means promoting economic growth while reducing pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, minimising waste and inefficient use of natural resources, and maintaining biodiversity. Green growth means improving health prospects for populations and strengthening energy security through ..., and specific areas such as REDD+It is expected that support for REDD+ (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation) should achieve cost effective emission reductions, as well as biodiversity and livelihoods benefits. REDD-plus includes conservation, the sustainable management of forests and the enhancement of ... (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest DegradationIt is expected that support for REDD+ (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation) should achieve cost effective emission reductions, as well as biodiversity and livelihoods benefits.).

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.
