Some of the notable patterns discovered in curating this dataset involve: an overarching concentrate on mitigation, power and nation-level information many platforms showcasing equivalent datasets and a basic lack of upkeep, even on meticulously constructed datasets. These all underscore a clear want to strengthen the world’s climate-connected information infrastructure.
