Climate Progress News Barrel

The Climate Progress News Barrel tool is a living, open-access resource for communicators, journalists, experts and social leaders that pulls together the biggest, most interesting and most important stories of climate progress and impacts across the global economy.

In the last few weeks ahead of COP26, it’s clear that climate action is nowhere near the pace and scale of what the science calls for. But government commitments under the Paris Agreement only tell part of the story. Change is happening, at different levels and in different ways, around the economy. The more governments see that their major businesses, investors, cities and regions are committing to stronger targets and that clean solutions are growing cheaper than polluting rivals, the greater confidence policymakers can have in raising their own ambitions.

This news barrel of stories about progress and impacts can help you find examples and spot trends in climate action and impacts, adding real-world stories and colour to broader themes.

If, for instance, you’re writing a story or speech about the finance sector’s shift away from fossil fuels, you can scroll through the Finance Progress Examples tab for the latest news stories. If you’re looking for commitments by businesses, investors and cities in the US, you can search for any recent news stories in the US/ North America across all tabs. Or, you can simply visit the spreadsheet every now and then to check for new research briefings or changes in a particular sector.

The Climate Progress News Barrel is hosted by Camda, a community of data and analytical experts providing climate action information from regions, cities, businesses, investors and civil society.
