Overview
This grant will support the Climate and Land Use Alliance at ClimateWorks Foundation. CLUA’s mission 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. 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.

Grants to this Grantee
for the independent Global Stocktake  
The independent Global Stocktake is a research and communications project driven by think tanks and civil society to raise the aspirations of parties to the Paris Agreement. It is a rigorous analytical project to highlight the differences 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 2 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. (Substrategy: Multilateral)
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. (Substrategy: Philanthropic Capacity)
for identifying China’s competitive advantage in technological CDR  
This grant will advance carbon dioxide removal solutions (CDR) in China, exploring how CDR can support China’s carbon peaking and neutrality goals through enhanced Chinese and international communities’ robust exchange on scientific, technological solutions and finance and regulatory policies in the direct air capture, carbon dioxide removal and utilization (Substrategy: China National Policy) .
