Climate Tagger is a suite of tools to help knowledge-driven organizations in the climate and development arenas streamline and catalogue their data and information resources, and connect them to the wider climate knowledge community. The Climate Tagger API is free to use and has been widely adopted in the field – by 2015 more than 700,000 documents had been analysed and tagged.
Climate Tagger utilizes Linked Open Data, and was first introduced by REEEP and other organizations of the Climate Knowledge Brokers Group in 2011. It is backed by the expansive Climate Compatible Development Thesaurus, compiled with the help of experts in fields ranging from climate mitigation and adaptation to economy and green growth, and many more specific sub-sectors.
To make Climate Tagger valuable for a wide range of climate knowledge brokers across the globe, the tool has been built to support five languages (English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, and German). Recently, we have looked at the use of controlled vocabularies in organizations from the LAC region, to learn from one another and to establish ties with potential collaborators.
This webinar will introduce Climate Tagger and showcase current use-cases of the tool. The webinar will be held in Spanish. For more information about the webinar, click here.
