1. Climate Risk Atlas: a decision support tool that combines spatial information on historical climate data, projections, impacts, and response actions.

2. Air Quality Dashboard: interactive visualizations of estimated daily PM2.5 values across South Africa. This method uses weather data and remote sensing data to predict historical air quality.

3. SDG Goal 3 (Health) Dashboard: a tool that links open data resources to targets and indicators of human health and well-being in South Africa at the local and district municipality scale.

4. Updated Data collections to further support global change research
