Legislative Tracker

The OPCC data platform is a transparent and for free instrument that provides a new way of seeing the legislative activity of countries in LAC, presenting indicators through a strong visual approach, with interactive graphs, action panels and comparable data in dashboard format. The platform is innovative not only for identifying and classifying data on environmental laws and decrees (current or repealed), but also for collecting data on environmental bills in progress in recent years in various LAC countries. The data is constantly updated to offer complete and reliable information to the user. For this reason, the free and creative use of available resources and tools is encouraged, which were designed to enable and facilitate broad and in-depth analysis of legislative activities in climate and just transition in LAC. In this sense, the expectation is that the OPCC data platform is a useful tool that highlights progress, opportunities for collaboration, and ways to advance on these issues in the region.
