Abstract:Human caused climate change has become an undeniable problem. Monitoring and mitigating this climate change is a priority for many countries and cities. Key performance Indicators (KPIs) related to climate change can be used to develop appropriate climate change mitigation policies. This study aims to identify useful KPIs and determine their units, values and use. 63 KPIs across eight main topics are presented in this study. These topics are pollution, resource use, climate hazards, biodiversity, transport, land use, health, and others. The use of these KPIs in 193 countries is evaluated and visualized. Together, the KPIs that are selected provide a step in the right direction towards a consistent and comparable index of global, well-defined metrics that can be used to monitor and mitigate climate change.
