Understanding data user needs for the Committee on Climate Change

The Committee on Climate Change (CCC) provides advice and data to government on preparing for climate change. We’ve supported the CCC for over five years.

We ran a research project with the CCC recently to understand what its users need from their data online. We spoke with existing stakeholders in 1-2-1 interviews, collating feedback in to a report. We found that visualisations and charts provide a useful overview but by themselves don’t give their audience the depth of data they need.

We refreshed the publications template so data and supporting research are easy to find. Clear call-to-actions help users read long publications and download data. In the listing, users can view featured publications or drill down using the search and filters.
