Our funder forums are high-trust communities where leading climate funders share ideas, build relationships, and strategize together.
One example is the Funders Table, which is an informal collaboration of not-for-profit foundations dedicated to climate change mitigation. Facilitated by the ClimateWorks Foundation, the Funders Table is a way for these organizations to learn from and work more closely with one another. The group examines climate trends, discusses climate mitigation opportunities, shares lessons learned, and thinks through how funders can best support the grantee community. The Funders Table is not a decision-making body; rather, its purpose is to improve the impact of participating foundations through dialogue and collaboration, as they seek to prevent dangerous climate change and help create a more prosperous future for all.
ClimateWorks Global Collaborations Examples
Our learning networks bring funders together to explore specific regional and sectoral strategies and learn together.
Regionally focused learning networks cover a range of geographies, including climate philanthropy in Africa, Brazil, China, and India.
Topical learning networks include collaboration groups focused on issues that are critical to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, including food and agriculture, governance and diplomacy, and the social and economic transition to a low-carbon economy.
Our joint-action groups are coalitions of funders, often working closely with the NGO community, to advance specific shared strategies and drive climate outcomes.
Established joint action groups include the Climate and Land Use Alliance (CLUA) and the Kigali Cooling Efficiency Program (K-CEP), as well as collaborations focused on advancing carbon dioxide removal solutions and accelerating the global transition to electric drive vehicles.
We also have several emerging joint action groups that cover a range of programmatic action areas, including aviation, finance, industry, and super pollutants.
