The Climate Change Laws of the World database builds on more than a decade of data collection by the Grantham Research Institute at LSE and the Sabin Center at Columbia Law School. The database is powered by machine learning and natural language processing technology developed by Climate Policy Radar.

Climate Change Laws of the World covers national-level climate change legislation and policies globally. The database covers climate and climate-related laws, as well as laws and policies promoting low carbon transitions, which reflects the relevance of climate policy in areas including energy, transport, land use, and climate resilience. This database originates from a collaboration between the Grantham Research Institute and GLOBE International on a series of Climate Legislation Studies.
