Database Methodology

A systematic methodology was adopted to develop the database. The methodology underwent review and improvements at several stages by experts to include more geographically diverse projects, particularly from the global south. For information on the methodology, please download the full database version. The database will continue to be updated via the public call for projects, and be maintained and improved by Sustainability in the Digital Age and Future Earth.

About the Re-Imagining Climate Governance in the Digital Age Project

Sustainability in the Digital Age and Future Earth in partnership with ClimateWorks Foundation developed the Digital Climate Projects Database as part of the Re-imagining Climate Governance in the Digital Age Project. To explore the rapidly evolving space of digital technology and climate governance, this larger project looked at the challenges and opportunities of using digital tools to accelerate climate action through a series of expert consultations, a literature review, and an analysis of the Digital Climate Projects Database. Using the data collected, a strategic framework was created to help guide actors to develop transformative, inclusive, and sustainable climate solutions.

Read our report to learn how the strategic framework could help you achieve your sustainability goals.
