In addition, we have found that expert groups predominantly work in silos, each collecting and curating their own types of climate-relevant information, exacerbating the burden for policymakers to develop integrated approaches to address climate change. Likewise, the Task Force on Climate Change-Related Statistics, through a survey of 48 national statistical offices, stakeholder consultations, and expert meetings found that datasets that could be useful for climate change analysis are not being fully linked across sectors, agencies, and domains. It also found that, in many cases, existing and available climate-relevant statistics are not used to their full potential, with duplication of efforts across data-collecting agencies. Similarly, even when countries have developed open data initiatives with political support, they may not be linked up with repositories of climate-relevant data. Currently the best example of a merging of climate-relevant data from across sectors and agencies are countries’ National Communications to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), which include a national GHG inventory and adaptation relevant data. Both are generated based on data provided by a plethora of entities—such as meteorological agencies, planning commissions, agriculture ministries, etc.
