About the Data-Driven EnviroLab (Data-Driven Lab)
The Data-Driven EnviroLab (Data-Driven Lab) is an interdisciplinary and international group of researchers, scientists, programmers, and visual designers based at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and is a joint initiative between the Department of Public Policy , the Environment, Ecology, and Energy (E3P) Program, and the Institute for Environment at UNC. The Data-Driven Lab uses innovative data analytics to distill signals from large-scale and unconventional datasets and develop policy solutions to contemporary environmental problems. Working with scholars and policymakers across the globe, the Data-Driven Lab strives to strengthen environmental policy at all levels. We promote evidence-based approaches to problem solving while boosting information disclosure and transparency among public institutions, private companies, civic organizations and individual citizens.
