Climate Tagger is a suite of tools to help knowledge-driven organizations in the climate and development arenas streamline and catalogue their data and information resources, and connect them to the wider climate knowledge community.

Climate Tagger was developed in 2011 by REEEP in collaboration with the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s Open Energy Information program, the Stockholm Environment Institute’s weADAPT program and the Institute for Development Studies’ Eldis program.

Climate Tagger utilizes Linked Open Data to help better catalogue and connect data, and backed by an expansive Thesaurus built with software PoolParty, and developed by experts in fields ranging from climate mitigation and adaptation. Currently a collaboration with SEI / PLACARD sees the development of the topics CCA and DRR.
