Global Development February Meetup

nameFebruary's Global Development Meetup on Wednesday, February 27, 2008 featured CGD Research Assistant Kevin Ummel for an introduction to Carbon Monitoring for Action (CARMA), as well as a "sneak peek" at new data.

At its core, CARMA is a massive database containing information on the carbon emissions of over 50,000 power plants and 4,000 power companies worldwide. Power generation accounts for 40% of all carbon emissions in the United States and about one-quarter of global emissions. CARMA is the first global inventory of a major, emissions-producing sector of the economy.
