The Climate Legislation Study covers over 850 national laws and policies directly related to climate change mitigation and adaptation. Launched in 2010 covering only 16 countries, the study currently covers 99 jurisdictions, which, taken together, produce 93 per cent of global emissions and are home to 90 per cent of the world’s forests. The database includes 46 of the world’s top 50 emitters.

The climate legislation database that underpins the study is updated regularly, is fully searchable and results are downloadable. The study also includes 99 detailed country chapters, latest developments, related research publications, and information about events.

Findings on latest trends in climate change legislation are compiled in the downloadable link above (‘Summary of key trends in climate legislation 2016’).
