Global Project on Delivering Climate Solutions

Project summary

The initiative supports the design and delivery of public-private partnerships that deliver tangible results and contribute to global processes on climate change, from the UN Climate Summit to the negotiations in Lima and Paris (2014-15). There are seven workstreams: 1) sustainable commodity chains to end deforestation, 2) the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative, 3) the 1/100 Club for disaster-proofing the financial system, 4) the Alliance for Climate-Smart Agriculture, 5) ClimateShape for the Global Shapers, 6) innovative financing for climate-resilient growth, and 7) UN collaboration

Objectives

The public-private partnerships aim to advance global climate efforts. Specific goals are to:

  • Achieve net-zero deforestation in four commodity supply chains, to help deliver around 8% of the emission reductions required by 2020
  • Develop common methodologies on measurement and encourage oil and gas companies to carry out collective reporting on climate-related topics
  • Disaster-proof the global financial system through regulatory change, stress tests and reporting; and deliver innovative financing instruments for fast-growing but vulnerable countries
  • Galvanize private-sector best practices on climate-smart agriculture
