The Global South Climate Database, a publicly available, searchable database of scientists and experts in climate science, climate policy and energy, was created by Carbon Brief with the support of the Oxford Climate Journalism Network at the Reuters Institute.

The aim is to ensure that journalists from all over the world can contact scientists and experts from the Global South, i.e. Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Pacific regions.

Therefore, climate scientists and experts from these regions are encouraged to sign up for the database.

According to the Reuters Institute, climate change is a global problem – so it’s vital that scientists from around the world are represented in reporting on the topic. However, climate scientists from the South are often underrepresented in the mainstream media. This includes their views and lived experiences, as well as their scientific findings.

Carbon Brief, with the support of the Oxford Climate Journalism Network, created the Global South Climate Database to ensure journalists from around the world can connect with scientists from Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Pacific.
