What We Do

Paris Agreement (dot) org produces and communicates objective analyses to assist the implementation of the Paris Agreement on climate change. ParisAgreement.org seeks to identify technical gaps and catalyze change so that countries can effectively address climate change. In terms of transparency in the Paris Agreement, this comes down to the quality of country inventories of greenhouse gas emissions. Operating as a “pop-up NGO” around the UNFCCC negotiations, ParisAgreement.org visualizes and contextualizes the negotiations to expand the circle understanding the complex process around the Paris Agreement.


Tracking the UNFCCC negotiations and making the multilateral climate change process more easily understandable through contextualization and visualization.


Bringing together bottom-up and top-down detection greenhouse gas estimates for more transparent, complete, consistent, comparable, and accurate greenhouse gas information.


ParisAgreement.org works in partnership with a number of institutes, sharing technical expertise with the goal of increasing country transparency under the Paris Agreement.

Who We Are

Our team digs into technical working processes and international negotiations so that the reporting on the ground matches emissions in the atmosphere. We bring together experts and volunteers from a variety of disciplines and organizations to communicate high-impact messages to decisionmakers on a common message: a successful Paris climate regime hinges upon increasing the transparency and dependability of greenhouse gas estimates.
