Climate data

United States

The World Bank climate knowledge portal makes it possible to explore historical data derived from three sources, all quality-controlled by leading institutions in the field. Also one can  explore future projections derived from global circulation models (GCMS), downscaled under two scenarios that describe future economic growth and energy use. These are the most comprehensive physically-based models of climate change available and used in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 4th Assessment Report. The portal is designed for use by development practioners and policy makers.
