The Paris agreements aim to limit the effects of climate change. To achieve this goal, states have committed to cap and then reduce their CO2 emissions, the main cause of global warming, in order to achieve carbon neutrality to control the level of warming.
Cities have a crucial role to play in this context. Indeed, they account for 67% of global GHG emissions.
Carbon Tracker is an application mainly designed for local authorities, interested in precisely tracking the evolution of their territory’s carbon neutrality trajectory, in accordance with the Paris Agreement and the ODD 13.
This project is part of the Space Tour 2021 component of the national space recovery plan led by CNES, and aims to improve the CO2 monitoring algorithms developed in partnership with EverImpact, as well as the data visualization tools.
