Climate philanthropy networks : Shaping and supporting the philanthropy ecosystem in the field of climate

May 2, 2022

This mapping shows the growing diversity and number of networks that have embraced the mission to support and grow the development of the philanthropy ecosystem in the field of climate. The twenty-one organisations presented range from those that are solely dedicated to climate issues to more general networks that work in a range of areas. Each profile gives a flavor of the organisation or platform's activities and goals. This mapping exercise is part of the activities of the Philanthropy Coalition for Climate (, a group of foundations, philanthropy infrastructure organisations and other partners gathered around the aim to empower philanthropy to drive bold climate action and transformational change in Europe and beyond.

State of Climate Action 2021: Systems Transformations Required to Limit Global Warming to 1.5°C

October 28, 2021

Limiting global warming to 1.5°C requires far-reaching transformations across power generation, buildings, industry, transport, land use, coastal zone management, and agriculture, as well as the immediate scale-up of technological carbon removal and climate finance. This report translates these transitions into 40 targets for 2030 and 2050, with measurable indicators.Transformations, particularly those driven by new technology adoption, often unfold slowly before accelerating after crossing a tipping point. Nearly a quarter of indicators assessed new technology adoption, with some already growing exponentially. This report considers such nonlinear change in its methodology.The transitions required to avoid the worst climate impacts are not happening fast enough. Of the 40 indicators assessed, none are on track to reach 2030 targets. Change is heading in the right direction at a promising but insufficient speed for 8 and in the right direction but well below the required pace for 17. Progress has stagnated for 3, while change for another 3 is heading in the wrong direction entirely. Data are insufficient to evaluate the remaining 9.This report also identifies underlying conditions that enable change—supportive policies, innovations, strong institutions, leadership, and shifts in social norms. Finance for climate action, for example, must increase nearly 13-fold to meet the estimated need in 2030.

Collaborative Philanthropy

August 20, 2021

There are opportunities and room for philanthropy sector to cross new borders regarding collective and collaborative action. Whether in the sense of articulation, when there are several players dedicated to the same causes and/or territories or to similar or complementary agendas, or in the search for engagement of new players – considering that there is still a great deal of potential to increase grants both in volume and number of donors, making the field ever more diverse. This publication addresses the concept of Collaborative Philanthropy, not only presenting an overview of the processes, formats and modes of action, but also seeking to illustrate ways for qualified enhanced collaboration in the field of philanthropy and social investment.
