Much Alarm, Less Action: Foundations & Climate Change

July 14, 2022

Despite the urgency of climate change and the narrowing window for action, philanthropic funding to address climate change remains very limited. Total philanthropic giving by foundations and individuals focused on climate change mitigation represents less than two percent of total global philanthropic giving, according to the ClimateWorks Foundation. While there is some evidence of increased momentum in recent years, more action will be needed to match the scale of the climate crisis.

Philanthropy can be a Solution to Making Localisation a Reality

July 11, 2022

As a long-term trend, accelerated by the response to Covid-19, the development cooperation and humanitarian aid sector have realised the urgent need to imagine and realise a better, more equitable, localised investment and deployment of resources.Localisation has been a word to describe that collective process through which a diverse range of stakeholders have a role to play, each in their own way, to ensure that the ownership of development efforts is held locally, with accountability to domestic constituents versus international donors for the planning, delivery and assessment of their communities' and country's development. Philanthropy as a stakeholder has a key role to play in making localisation a reality.This policy briefing is offered as a think piece to prompt further, future reflection by international and domestic actors in development cooperation and humanitarian aid about how they each can act to reinforce local philanthropy to further genuine and sustainable localisation.
