Environmental Data & Governance Initiative (EDGI) is an international network of academics and non-profits addressing potential threats to federal environmental and energy policy.

Archiving Government Data
Working with partners we preserve potentially vulnerable scientific data and web pages from EPA and DOE among other federal agencies.
Monitoring Federal Websites
We monitor changes to tens of thousands of environmental agency web pages to trace how data, information, and their presentation change.
Interviewing Federal Experts
We interview long-time federal employees to provide a human and nuanced perspective on impacts of the current administration on agencies.

Our work is made possible through grants and tax-deductible donations from the public.
We need your support!
