For The Climate Briefing Service And Communications Infrastructure Support
Type of SupportGeneral Support/Program
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 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)

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) .
