Strategies
Overview
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 percent of human-related greenhouse gas emissions. More effective land use protects the climate by reducing carbon emissions and preserving nature’s vital carbon sinks. This program grant will support ClimateWorks Foundation’s Global Forests and Land Use campaign, through the Climate and Land Use Alliance. The goal is 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.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Carbon Dioxide Removal Initiative  
This grant will allow ClimateWorks to develop a strategy for innovation and atmospheric carbon dioxide removal (CDR). The project will support the development of a new field around CDR, and make grants to existing organizations to create programs to support CDR policy development. The program will focus on engineered and natural removal. Engineered CDR includes technologies such as direct air capture, enhanced rock weathering, and bio-energy carbon capture (BECC). Natural solutions include soil enhancements such as biochar, aforestation, and changes in agricultural practices to store more carbon in the soil.
for the transforming transportation program  
This grant will support the Transforming Transportation Global Initiative of ClimateWorks Foundation. The Initiative has three goals: increase adoption of clean-powered electric vehicles, increase ambition and coordination among stakeholders, and foster accessible and actionable information sharing. The efforts are focused in U.S., the E.U., China, and India, which together account for more than 60 percent of the global automotive market. One of the milestones of the Initiative is to showcase the low-carbon transport commitments from different stakeholders and jurisdictions in the 2018 Global Climate Action Summit, and follow-through on commitments post-Summit.
