Data collection and reporting methods used by leading greenhouse emitting countries
Climate Scorecard’s Global Spotlight Report looks at the ways in which leading greenhouse gas emitting countries collect climate change data. A strong climate change data collection and information system should contain data that is timely, reliable, consistent, comprehensive, and transparent. Its data should be made available in different formats to serve the needs of a variety of stakeholders including researchers, policy-makers, and the general public. Climate Scorecard makes use of these criteria to rate country data emissions systems according to our 4 point rating system.
