International Cooperative Initiatives

The Climate Cooperative Initiatives Database (C-CID) provides analyses of non-state and sub-national adaptation achieved through cooperative climate initiatives. These are collaborative arrangements between two or more parties that include at least one non-state actor – such as businesses, investors, civil society organizations, and faith-based organizations – or one subnational government actor – including municipalities, local communities, and regional governments. The Climate Initiative Tracker provides data on targets, organizational characteristics, participants' profiles, planned activities, and tangible outputs.

The database includes hundreds of international cooperative initiatives. These were identified by reviewing outputs and activities of prominent global climate summits, as well as the UNFCCC's Global Climate Action Platform and UNEP's Climate Initiatives Platform. The database was developed between 2017 and 2020 and is continually updated as a part of the ClimateSouth Project, which involves the German Development Institute/Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik, Blavatnik School of Government at the University of Oxford (BSG), and the GCA.
