TRANSLATING LAW AND DATA INTOClimate Action
We fight climate change by using the combined power of law, data and analysis to:
- support allies fighting for climate justice and human rights;
- enable compliance with climate commitments; and
- hold accountable those causing the climate crisis.
Welcome to the Center for Climate Crime Analysis
The Center for Climate Crime Analysis (CCCA) is a non-profit organization founded by prosecutors and investigators, designed to support and scale up climate action worldwide.
CCCA is unique, both in its mandate and methodology.
Who We Are
We are a diverse team of lawyers, data scientists, remote sensing analysts, anthropologists, and environmental engineers working all over the world. Our expertise ranges from work with indigenous communities, to domestic, transnational and international law enforcement, to geospatial imaging and remote sensing, to strategic human rights and climate litigation.
How We Work
Our work has a force multiplier effect: enhancing the impact of investigations by our partners; and enabling more effective implementation of the enforcement, litigation and advocacy mandates of others by providing quality information and support.

What We Do
95% of Brazil’s deforestation is illegal
CCCA uses the combined power of the law, data and analysis to make it stop.
Peru is Losing its Amazon Virgin Rainforest to Palm Oil
CCCA supports strategic initiatives to convey a message against the prevailing impunity on historical cases of large-scale deforestation linked to palm oil.
Colombia lost 841,000ha of Amazon Rainforest in the past 5 years
That’s as much as 1.5 million football stadiums.
CCCA analyses the main forest-risk commodities to discourage actors that facilitate deforestation through their supply chains and investments.
Rapid cuts in methane emissions are vital to limit global warming in the next decade
Yet this critical piece of the climate puzzle is often overlooked.
Methane emissions are responsible for about 30% of current warming but they are difficult to track and measure. Now that technical data is improving, CCCA is translating it into concrete action.
Environmental contamination and human harm from mining
Cerro de Pasco is a mining town located on the high plateau of central Peru. Numerous Peruvian governmental authorities and NGOs, as well as international organizations, have reported that Cerro de Pasco is exposed to extreme levels of environmental pollution caused by mining which impacts on the health of the town’s inhabitants.
