    General Support/Program
The United Nations Foundation is the fiscal sponsor for two important projects: the Global Climate Action Summit, hosted by the State of California, and the U.S. Climate Alliance. In September 2018, the Summit will convene governors, mayors, CEOs, and other sub-national climate champions from around the globe to support and implement the Paris Agreement. The U.S. Climate Alliance is a bipartisan coalition of 15 U.S. states committed to upholding the emissions reduction goals of the Paris Agreement and demonstrating leadership on climate change. The Alliance member states collectively represent more than 36 percent of the US population, over $7.6 trillion in GDP, and nearly 20 percent of U.S. emissions.

for the U.S. Climate Alliance  
The U.S. Climate Alliance is a bipartisan coalition of governors representing 24 states, with more than 60% of U.S. GDP, 55% of the U.S. population, and 40% of U.S. emissions. These governors are committed to driving the nation’s ambitious climate agenda by working in partnership with each other, the federal government, and the international community. The alliance has an important role to play in implementation of federal climate investment laws by supporting state engagement with federal agencies, supporting the development of state decarbonization plans, and supporting effective deployment of federal dollars to drive decarbonization and community economic development.

for the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data  
The United Nations Foundation serves as the institutional host of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data (GPSDD), which brings together government, private-sector, civil society, and international institutions to harness new and traditional sources of data to better understand and address development challenges. This grant will supplement our current general operating support to GPSDD, which is currently working on the implementation of the partnership’s new strategic plan, which seeks to solve three major problems: (a) how to harness up-to-date data to ensure decisions are informed by current and changing contexts; (b) how to safely include and represent all people in data and the data value chain; and (c) how to govern data fairly and safely. This grant supports the Evidence-Informed Policymaking strategy goal that governments in East and West Africa make better use of data to improve decision making and outcomes for people.
for strengthening and enhancing climate diplomacy  
This grant is for enhancing the capacity of the U.N. secretary-general’s climate team and key U.N. agencies to deliver their ambitious climate agenda, building bridges between the United States — at the federal and state levels — and the U.N. around key international diplomatic events. Through strategic convenings and coordination across different constituencies, the U.N. Foundation will encourage climate ambition from countries as they continue to develop and implement their nationally determined contributions (NDCs) and their long-term strategies.
