Overview
This grant will expand, to Poland and Turkey, the European Climate Foundation’s successful stakeholder engagement model for solving clean energy integration issues.

This grant will support European Climate Foundation’s Global Strategic Communications Council. The council is an international communications network that supports NGO activity all over the world.

for the carbon dioxide removal and carbon capture hub at the port of Rotterdam  
This project seeks to achieve buy-in from key European NGOs for an industrial decarbonization strategy that is built around carbon capture. The European Climate Foundation will work with stakeholders to develop a governing consensus for the deployment of carbon capture and the accompanying infrastructure. Key stakeholders will include major E.U. climate NGOs; representatives from the iron, steel, cement, and chemical industries; national governments; and labor unions.
for the International Climate Politics Hub  
The European Climate Foundation plays an international leadership role in climate change mitigation. The International Climate Policy Hub will support efforts leading up to the 26th UNFCCC’s Conference of the Parties to be held in Glasgow in 2020. The Hub will support key countries in demonstrating progress, reaffirming commitments, and showing collective ambition on the global scale in order to align with the goals of the Paris Agreement. The Hub will also work to ensure NDC commitments are accompanied by Paris-compliant finance agendas, and will support activities such as workshopping best practices, and building peer-to-peer exchanges between national governments, cities, regions, investors, and businesses.
