Strengthening the response to climate change
To sustain life on earth as we know it, we must prevent average global temperatures from rising more than 2°C and keep atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) below 450 parts per million. Failure to achieve these goals increases the risk of irreversible loss of biodiversity, economic devastation, the inundation of coastal cities, catastrophic loss of agriculture and fresh water and more frequent and catastrophic weather events. These changes will be irreversible and will overwhelmingly affect the poorest and most vulnerable people on the earth.
“Solving the problem of climate change requires collective action on a scale rarely seen before. ClimateWorks is building the global capacity of funders to collaboratively design strategies, coordinate investments and learn. We hope this will increase the likelihood of creating a safe future.”
