This platform makes information about climate change adaptation planning across the globe openly available, easy and interesting to explore. This initial version showcases adaptation plans in the climate pledges of all signatories of the Paris Agreement of UNFCCC. The platform highlights the prominence of Nature-based Solutions to climate change impacts in global policy and links pledges to the underlying science. The goal is to facilitate the global stocktake of the Paris Agreement and provide a baseline against which changes in ambition for Nature-based Solutions to climate change adaptation can be monitored and increased. The platform will grow with more policies and functionalities. Please let us know how we can make it most useful to you.

PREPdata is a free, open source data platform that provides the accessible, curated data that decision-makers need to analyze vulnerability and build climate resilience. It allows users to easily access highly credible climate, physical and socioeconomic datasets from sources like NASA, NOAA, USGS, ESA and more; map them to visualize a specific region’s vulnerability; track the indicators most relevant to their work on customizable dashboards; request that data providers add new tools or datasets to PREPdata; and share their stories with adaptation practitioners around the world. The platform’s wide-ranging datasets include extreme weather events, precipitation, drought and flood risks, social vulnerability, coastal energy facilities, landslides, sea level rise, global urban heat island effect, reservoirs and dams, global cropland extent and more. PREPdata is an initiative of the Partnership for Resilience and Preparedness.
Resource Watch provides trusted and timely data for a sustainable future. The platform features hundreds of data sets on the state of the planet and human well-being.
