Overview
The Latin America Regional Climate Initiative (LARCI)—created in collaboration with ClimateWorks Foundation, Oak Foundation, and the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation—is a convener and regranter to reduce emissions and promote growth in the region. This grant seeks to support LARCI’s strategies in mobility and transportation policies in Mexico and Brazil. Transport in cities is expected to be among the largest sources of emissions in Latin America in the next decade. LARCI’s interventions in the sector aim to reduce about 80 million tons of carbon by 2035. Strategies include creating transit-oriented plans to improve urban mobility in main cities, enhance vehicle efficiency standards, and reduce subsidies on fossil fuels.

Grants to this Grantee
for the creation of a Latin America Regional Climate Foundation  
The ClimateWorks Foundation, in consortium with the Oak Foundation and the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, has launched the Latin America Regional Climate Foundation with strategies to reduce emissions, primarily from the power and transportation sectors. We recommend renewing this grant to ClimateWorks to ensure that the climate mitigation work in Latin America is leveraged and coordinated with current efforts of the Hewlett’s Clean Transportation Portfolio to reduce conventional pollutants in Brazil and Mexico.
for creating a Latin America Regional Climate Foundation  
The ClimateWorks Foundation, in consortium with the Oak Foundation and the Children's Investment Fund Foundation, is working to launch a Latin America Regional Climate Foundation that would seek opportunities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and local air pollutants, primarily from the power and transportation sectors. We recommend this grant to ClimateWorks to ensure that the climate mitigation work in Latin America is leveraged and coordinated with current efforts of the Hewlett’s Clean Transportation Portfolio to reduce conventional pollutants in Brazil and Mexico.
for general operating support  
ClimateWorks Foundation (CW) is a worldwide philanthropic network organized to win the battle against climate change. Its goal is to ensure that the global average temperature does not increase by more than 2°C—a threshold many scientists describe as a dangerous tipping point. CW’s method is to work in the top emitting nations to build low-carbon energy policies and to reduce the rate of deforestation in the world’s largest, most threatened tropical forests.
