The climate policy maps are created from a database which contains selected socio-economic, energy and climate policy information for a choice of countries. The countries include major groups such as G-20, BRICS and the European Union. This choice of countries is due to their impact on climate change. The Group of Twenty (G-20) together represent around 90 per cent of global gross national product and 80 per cent of world trade (including EU intra-trade).BRICS and Mexico are so called emerging economies with considerable increase in energy consumption.
Here is a detailed list of the countries and data currently included in the database:
