The UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is holding its 22nd Conference of the Parties (COP 22) from November 7-18 in Marrakech, Morocco. Negotiators from nearly 200 countries are convening to advance the implementation of the Paris Agreement on climate change that was struck at COP21 in December 2015. COP 22 presents a crucial opportunity to advance implementation of the Agreement, moving us further towards a zero-carbon, climate resilient world with a growing global economy.
We measure our success through real change on the ground. Our approach involves three essential steps: Count It, Change It, and Scale It.
We start with data. We conduct independent research and draw on the latest technology to develop new insights and recommendations. Our rigorous analysis identifies risks, unveils opportunities, and informs smart strategies. We focus our efforts on influential and emerging economies where the future of sustainability will be determined.
We use our research to influence government policies, business strategies, and civil society action. We test projects with communities, companies, and government agencies to build a strong evidence base. Then, we work with partners to deliver change on the ground that alleviates poverty and strengthens society. We hold ourselves accountable to ensure our outcomes will be bold and enduring.
We don’t think small. Once tested, we work with partners to adopt and expand our efforts regionally and nationally. We engage with decision-makers to carry out our ideas and elevate our impact. We measure success through government and business actions that improve people's lives and sustain a healthy environment.
