Grants to this Grantee
for India power sector work, communications, and the Philanthropy Task Force  
This grant will support efforts to implement communications strategies around increasing the use of renewable energy at the state level in India. India has aggressive wind and solar goals at the national level, but most of the implementation will happen at the sub-national level. The Global Strategic Climate Center will work with state-based technical assistance NGO’s, local governments, and consumer interests to build support for low cost, reliable, renewable energy. This grant also supports the Philanthropy Task Force to produce action plans and pilot projects to bring additional funding and partnership to the climate space.
for the Global Strategic Communications Council and the Philanthropy Task Force  
This grant will support the European Climate Foundation’s Philanthropy Task Force. This was inspired by French President Emmanuel Macron to catalyze both private donors and development agencies to support climate mitigation in Southeast Asia, clean energy innovation, global clean air campaigns, and efforts to protect land-based carbon sinks. The second part of the grant will support ECF’s Global Strategic Climate Communications program. This grant will fund the GSCC’s core program and its India program. The key focus in this grant period is to create narratives of climate ambition at key moments throughout the year, both at international and national levels, in order to help turn sectors and governments from a simple commitment to the Paris Agreement to implementing its measures in earnest.
for general operating support  
The European Climate Foundation (ECF) — a "foundation of foundations" — was established in early 2008 as a major philanthropic initiative to help Europe foster the development of a low-carbon society and play an even stronger international leadership role to mitigate climate change. ECF supports the sustainable development of a low-carbon society in Europe through policy support in the areas of energy, transportation, buildings, low-carbon finance, industry, and energy efficiency. ECF also supports international efforts to mitigate carbon emissions at the United Nations and G20. They work to develop policy at the local, national, and European Union level.
