Grants to this Grantee
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.
for the Climate and Land Use Alliance  
ClimateWorks’ Climate and Land Use Alliance has a mission to realize the potential of forested and agricultural landscapes to mitigate climate change, benefit people, and protect the environment, primarily in Indonesia, Brazil, and Mesoamerica. Land use — from deforestation, land degradation, and the draining and burning of tropical peatlands to fertilizer application and rice and cattle production — is responsible for about 25% of human-related greenhouse gas emissions. More effective land use protects the climate by reducing carbon emissions and preserving nature’s vital carbon sinks.
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.
