Climate Watch


Managed by the World Resources Institute, Climate Watch is a global coalition of countries and institutions collaborating to ensure nations receive the technical and financial support to achieve climate targets under the Paris Agreement. Climate Watch's historical emissions dataset provides a record of past greenhouse gas emissions across various sectors and gases, categorized by both geographic and sector-specific divisions, and presents future emission scenarios, each predicated on distinct assumptions regarding economic growth, technological advancements, and policy implementations. These scenarios facilitate exploration into potential future states of global emissions.

Topics covered:

  • Greenhouse gas emissions data by sector and gas

  • Future emission scenarios based on economic, technological, and policy assumptions, compiled by Climate Watch

As with all Public Domain datasets, Cybersyn aims to release data on Snowflake Marketplace as soon as the underlying source releases new data. We check periodically for changes to the underlying source and, upon detecting a change, propagate the data to Snowflake Marketplace immediately. See our release process for more details.


EAV Model: All Cybersyn products follow the EAV (entity, attributes, value) model with a unified schema. Entities are tangible objects (e.g. geography, company) that Cybersyn provides data on. All timeseries' dates and values that refer to the entity are included in a timeseries table. Descriptors of the timeseries are included in an attributes table. Data is joinable across all Cybersyn products that have a GEO_ID. Refer to Cybersyn Concepts for more details.
