Global Climate Action
Work So Far.
“Action must come from governments, cities, regions, businesses and investors. Everyone has a role to play in effectively implementing the Paris Agreement.” – United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)
This work is still in progress, but some of the things that are being done are: mapping out the political economy of carbon-related sectors and finding ways to get stakeholders involved in sector reform; making sure that projects are made so that local communities can benefit fairly and in a meaningful way from green growth investments; doing gender and vulnerability analyses to find gaps and make sure that women and underrepresented groups are involved in decisions about carbon-related sectors; and making sure that projects are designed so that local communities can benefit fairly and in a meaningful way from green growth.
