In practice, it acts as a one stop center which centralizes and integrates the data coming from various sources and allows to harmonize it according to international standards while ensuring data quality and reliability. This supports analysis, informed policy-making and monitoring with the goal of eradicating extreme poverty and hunger. Through national and regional CountrySTAT projects, FAO forms partnerships with statistical offices and the ministries of agriculture, fisheries and forestry among others to introduce the system and build the national capacity to use it.

In each country, the national government makes a substantial contribution to ensure its deployment and continued training and maintenance. STAT.

National Hurricane Center. Le nucléaire près de chez vous. OpenStreetMap. Player. Since 2005, Europe has been running the world's largest greenhouse gas market, capping emissions of its major factories and power stations, and allowing those companies to buy and sell pollution permits amongst themselves, as well as on the international "offsets" market, where funds go towards developing world projects that help curb emissions.

The permits were originally handed out for free instead of by auction – a practice that, according to the Times, has likely earned some of the heaviest CO2 emitters billions of extra euros since 2005. There were also far too many credits initially issued at a time when dirty fuel was ridiculously cheap, leaving polluters with plenty of breathing room and inspiring some, like energy expert David Victor, to call the European Trading System little more than a "Potemkin market. " The British non-profit organization Sandbag has created this map-based visualization in an attempt to illuminate the unwieldy world of carbon trading.

Water Security. Transparency Index. The Transparency Index is a way of comparing how well EU member states are doing at providing information on who gets what from the Common Agricultural Policy.

Transparency Index

The scores are out of 100 and are weighted averages based on a number of criteria including: the number of years for which data has been released; the amount of detail in the data, e.g. geographical location, description of subsidy schemes, date, currency etc; the format of disclosure (we give extra points for disclosure of raw data in a machine-readable format and we penalise disclosure in PDF files). They are calculated and regularly updated by Nils Mulvad, co-founder of

Countries that release comprehensive and detailed data in a machine-readable format will score highly. A country that simply follows the EU law on disclosure will score around 35%. We welcome countries that have worked with us to improve their transparency scores, such as the governments of Lithuania and Malta.
