Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
ClimateWorks Foundation works to address climate change and advance clean energy and a prosperous economy. They pursue a global approach to reducing greenhouse gas emissions aimed at energy sectors and regions with high or fast-growing levels of greenhouse gas pollution. Among their priorities are increasing clean, renewable energy sources; promoting energy efficiency; supporting work on clean transportation; and reducing deforestation and emissions of highly potent greenhouse gases. ClimateWorks will also continue to increase philanthropic capacity in the field.
for the Clean Energy, Clean Air Initiative  
This grant has three objectives to further climate mitigation in China. First, it will support innovative ways to build the capacity of frontline climate mitigation NGOs that work at the provincial level, including regranting, convenings, and technical support. It will also provide capacity building within China’s nascent philanthropic sector to support efforts to build climate NGO capacity.
for the independent Global Stocktake  
The independent Global Stocktake (iGST) is a research and communications project driven by thinks tanks and civil society to raise the aspirations of parties to the Paris agreement. It is a rigorous analytical project to highlight the difference between what countries have pledged; what they are actually doing; and what needs to be done to meet the goal of keeping global temperature increases well below two degrees, as set under the Paris treaty. This project will precede the official UNFCCC Global Stocktake (GST), and is designed to help keep that process honest and ambitious. The GST will be one input when countries submit their national determined commitments to meet the Paris goals in 2025.
