Climate Transparency receives support from International Climate Initiative
HUMBOLDT-VIADRINA Governance Platform is proud to announce that the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) will provide funding to the international partnership Climate Transparency between March 2018 and February 2020.
The HUMBOLDT-VIADRINA Governance Platform serves as the International Secretariat of Climate Transparency, in cooperation with Germanwatch and NewClimate Institute.
Climate Transparency brings together the most authoritative climate assessments and expertise of institutions from G20 countries. Jointly, these experts develop a credible, comprehensive and comparable picture on the climate performance of G20 countries – the annual Brown to Green Report, which includes easy-to-use information on mitigation, vulnerability and finance.
The main purpose of the IKI project is to enhance the knowledge of key actors on G20 climate performance and thus their readiness to push for more ambitious climate action in Argentina, Brazil, India, Indonesia, Mexico and South Africa.
Activities will include workshops, briefings, targeted knowledge products and media work to provide vital information to government representatives – particularly finance experts and ministries – G20 stakeholders, NGOs, think tanks and business.
Key partners are: Germanwatch e.V., NewClimate Institute, Overseas Development Institute (ODI) as well as the Fundación Ambiente y Recursos Naturales (Argentina), Fundação COPPETEC/Centro Clima (Brazil), the Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) (India), Institute for Essential Service Reform (Indonesia), Iniciativa Climática de Mexico (Mexico), Energy Research Center of University of Cape Town (South Africa), The World Bank, Climate Works Foundation, the European Climate Foundation and IDDRI.
Between March 2018 and February 2020, Climate Transparency receives ca. 2,5 million € from the International Climate Initiative.
