The International Climate Action Initiative uses analysis, innovation and partnerships to achieve effective national policies and ambitious, equitable international climate action
The International Climate Action Initiative works to advance national and international cooperation on climate change and to catalyze ambitious, equitable action and implementation of the Paris Agreement.
The Initiative works on implementation of the Paris Agreement in order to meet its stated goal of limiting temperature rise to 1.5, or even 2 degrees, Celsius. The ACT 2015 and Open Climate Network (OCN) programs work with partners from around the world to construct and provide resources that facilitate INDC implementation at the national level. For example, the CAIT Paris Contribution Map was developed to be a resource for stakeholders in the UN climate process, allowing users to better understand country climate mitigation contributions.
In addition to engaging around the UNFCCC and the Paris Agreement, the International Climate Action Initiative also addresses climate policies in other contexts, including international cooperative initiatives involving national governments, businesses and cities; broader development policy and linkages with climate policy; and key bilateral relationships between countries. WRI works across its international offices and with key stakeholders around the world to ensure that national and international action plans for the new climate agreement are robust, ambitious and transparent.
