Grants to this Grantee
for monitoring coalitions of climate action through the Climate Constituencies Project  
The Climate Constituencies Project at the University of Maryland will analyze constituencies to understand political polarization and echo chambers in American climate politics. This research will help explain how climate policy actors situate themselves within relevant coalitions and in the broader network in terms of their tactics, targets, constituencies, and collaborations. (Substrategy: U.S. National Policy)
for the China program and other key countries  
To support University of Maryland’s effort in facilitating the implementation of the U.S.-China Joint Glasgow Declaration on Enhancing Climate Action, and related strategies in the emerging economies. It focuses on accelerating coal consumption reduction, methane analysis and action pathways, deforestation reduction in supply chain and material flows, industry decarbonization and programmatic support for the US government engagement and collaborative analysis in other key countries. (Substrategy: China National Policy)
for strategies to support a rapid energy transition in Germany  
The Center for Global Sustainability (CGS) at the University of Maryland will explore feasible, low-cost pathways for Germany to safely transition away from its current energy approach in the near term — specifically, for the upcoming winter season and in three to five years — and to support the nation in avoiding poor investment decisions that lock Germany into a fossil-dependent path incompatible with a global 1.5 Celsius trajectory.
