The Cross-Cutting Strategies Portfolio
To support the social and economic conditions necessary for climate action, ClimateWorks collaborates on multiple strategies that cut across economic and emission sectors to accelerate the global low-carbon transition.
International agreements, and the efforts taken at multiple levels of governance to live up to them, are important features of climate action. ClimateWorks and its partners proactively encourage the adoption and implementation of ambitious climate policies at global level and in high-priority regions. We support the strategic alignment of players in the field who are motivating policymakers and the private sector to demonstrate ambition, employ innovative policy levers, and rely on sound data and analysis.
Climate action is more likely to succeed when constituencies and policymakers are well-informed about both the damaging effects and costs of climate change and the possible solutions. Grantees in the Cross-Cutting Strategies portfolio are making this possible by helping shape the political and media narrative, increasing public awareness, and creating political space for ambitious new policies. The portfolio’s main priorities are to promote clear and accurate communication of climate science and to focus public attention on climate change impacts, drivers, and solutions.
