4 CAIT– Climate Analysis Indicators Tool WRI What is CAIT? Information & analysis tool on global climate change Provides database GHG & indicators Data can be used to support future policy decisions CAIT products free of charge CAIT (online) CAIT-UNFCCC (GHG emissions UNFCCC Parties) CAIT-V&A (vulnerability and adaptive capacity) CAIT-Excel (download, interface Microsoft Excel)

5 CAIT– Climate Analysis Indicators Tool WRI Who developed CAIT? WRI Climate, Energy & Pollution Program of the World Resources Institute developed by Kevin A. Baumert and Matthew Markoff of WRI contribution Odile Blanchard (LEPII-EPE) and Niklas Höhne (ECOFYS) financial support of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Wallace Global Fund and the Prospect Hill Foundation
