The goal of the North Carolina Leadership Forum is to develop a sufficiently large cohort of leaders in the state who have the will, skills, and relationships to work constructively with others of different political parties or ideologies. By doing this, the Forum aims to create a healthy and productive policymaking environment for North Carolina and its local governments. This grant will allow the Forum to evaluate its work and build the capacity for the program to be replicated in other states.

for the Energy Access Project
The Energy Access Project (EAP), housed at Duke University, explores new climate finance frontiers with multilateral development banks and Chinese financial institutions to enhance global low-carbon investment supply to developing countries. The EAP’s New Frontier in Climate Finance project looks to increase the catalytic nature of foreign investments, move those investments into critical low-carbon growth sectors needing demonstration and de-risking, and create a race-to-the-top that mobilizes Chinese capital outside its borders and into these markets. Progress towards these goals has quantitative aspects, which the project aims to contribute to over one-year and five-year timeframes. (Substrategy: China National Policy)
