The Global Climate Network is an alliance of nine influential, progressive think tanks located in countries where action on climate change really matters. We bring together some of the world’s brightest brains to propose progressive solutions to climate change that will also help lay the foundations for a new era of prosperity.
Our focus is on policy. We will work with decision makers on innovations that help clear space for progressive action on climate change. Each of us enjoys international renown, but understands that domestic change is the key to successful global action.
We think that climate change policy has to be led by governments, acting independently and together. But because each of us is well connected domestically, we understand that governments as yet do not have the political space to implement the depth of policies needed.
We are committed to producing high-quality research and bright policy ideas that help governments link climate change policy with human and economic progress, including with poverty eradication. Our focus is therefore on technological progress, economic development and policies that reduce not entrench inequality.
