Towards a Common Vocabulary for Climate Change
A new project being developed by three organisations, each with their own particular interests in climate knowledge sharing, aims to make a small contribution towards addressing this issue.
The project partners – Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (CCCCC), the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) and Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP) aim to develop a shared Linked Open Data (LOD) thesaurus which bring together and build on each of their independently developed controlled vocabularies.
The project is being supported by the Open Knowledge Hub (OKHub.org), an Open Content project funded by UKAid which aims to improve supply and accessibility of content that supports policy making and practice in global development. The Hub has been developed by a group of partners, led by the Open Knowlege and Digital Services team at the Institute of Development Studies.
