The Global South Climate Database

The Global South Climate Database is a publicly available, searchable database of scientists and experts in the fields of climate science, policy and energy.

The project, set up by Carbon Brief with the support of the Reuters Institute’s Oxford Climate Journalism Network, aims to ensure that journalists from all over the world can contact climate experts from Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Pacific.

The database

The database lists each person’s area of expertise, institutional affiliation, contact details and other relevant information. The experts cover many different languages from around the world, but all speak English too.

You can use the search bar to filter by research expertise, nationality, institution, pronouns, etc.

The database was last updated on 31 October 2022.

The Oxford Climate Journalism Network – a programme at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at the University of Oxford – is supporting Carbon Brief to promote and maintain the list.

About the database

The database currently lists 849 experts from 102 countries. The map below shows the nationalities of the respondents, where larger circles indicate a greater number of experts.

All experts on the database are nationals of at least one global south country. Some experts have dual nationality and so are counted twice on this graphic.

There are currently more than 70 languages represented on the database. Spanish, Hindi and French are the most commonly spoken languages by experts on the database, after English.

Around 60% of respondents to the database use he/him pronouns, while 35% use she/her. Meanwhile, 0.9% of respondents identify as they/them.
