Overview
This project grant to the ClimateWorks Foundation would fund the establishment of an international climate communications infrastructure in China, India, and Brazil, to support efforts around the United Nations Convention on Climate Change in Paris in 2015. It will also fund the establishment of a Climate Briefing Service, which will work with the communications effort to provide country-specific content to critical governmental bodies in support of country-specific emissions reduction targets. These targets will form the basis of any UNFCCC agreement in Paris. After the UNFCCC meetings, the communications infrastructure will play a key role in future national efforts.

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.*Conflict Footnote
