& Biosecurity 

Focus_Areas-Green-02.png

The World Climate Foundation has created several impact platforms that enable multi-sector stakeholders to build alliances and develop ambition loops for climate, nature and health innovation.

2022 has marked the launch of our three new global networks for climate, biodiversity and biosecurity. Here, stakeholders can collectively identify and accelerate solutions, actions and investments toward the world's most pressing environmental challenges.

 

Impact Platforms

Our Impact Platforms aim to achieve triple impact in tackling the global challenges, as well as implementing the new green economy and achieving the UN Sustainable Development goals through collective action.

Global Networks

World Climate Network brings together influential high-level decision-makers and thought leaders across government, business, finance and civil society. It is driven by genuine action in the form of breakthrough innovations, impactful policies and sustainable investments. The Network focuses on reaching net-zero before 2050, a swift transition to a new climate economy and implementing the Paris Agreement and culminating in the annual World Climate Summit - Investment COP.

World Climate Network

World Biodiversity Network

World Biodiversity Network is the first global public-private partnership to address the urgent need for biodiversity restoration through nature-based and resource-efficient solutions. The network gathers key stakeholders to tackle biodiversity loss and nature depletion, promotes a circular economy and catalyses ambition and vision to strengthen the work of the Convention on Biological Diversity. The network is further amplified by the annual World Biodiversity Summit.

Global Biosecurity Network

Global Biosecurity Network leverages experience from cross-sector collaboration to create resilience and safeguard against future pandemics. The key objective is to learn from the latest research on best practice for handling COVID-19 and other pandemics while utilising the One-Health approach (human, animal and environmental health) to collaborate on a broader set of solutions to prevent future pandemic threats. In May 2023, we will host the inaugural Global Biosecurity Summit in Geneva.

Climate Investment Coalition

The Climate Investment Coalition (CIC) is an independent public-private sector initiative that convenes asset owners, asset managers, businesses and governments to work across sectors to develop investable markets for climate solutions through public and private sector ambition loops. In 2021, the CIC supported an unparalleled total collective commitment from Nordic and UK pension funds of US$130 billion to be invested in clean energy and climate investments by 2030 and reported on annually. The World Climate Foundation is one of the founding partners of the Climate Investment Coalition.

Annual Summits

Our globally renowned Summits on climate, biodiversity and biosecurity offer high-level participation and unmissable opportunities for collaboration. They provide international cross-sector dialogue on much-needed innovation & technology, policies & frameworks, and finance & investment for a faster transition to the green economy. They are linked to the relevant major UN and global convenings on climate, biodiversity and biosecurity issues.

Coalition Building & Partnerships

Together with our members and partners, we identify partnerships, initiatives and coalitions that can provide solutions for and foster action towards a green economy. For example, the Climate Investment Coalition acts as a primary international force in stimulating meaningful climate investments before 2030. We connect stakeholders purposefully based on profiles and strategies as well as promote partnerships and initiatives through our platforms.

Thought Leadership

To support the transition to a resilient future, we guide the development of tailored net-zero and nature-positive sector or industry pathways. We select key stakeholders and map global trends and events in sectors such as finance, energy, industry, transport, built environment, food, nature and health - while assisting members and partners to connect and share best practices across the network, galvanising further ambition and action.
