Climate change, perhaps today’s most challenging peace and security issue, is a direct threat to human survival and wellbeing. It is also a threat-multiplier, especially in conflict prone areas of the world.
In an effort to diminish this threat, the nations of the world have agreed to limit the increase in global average temperature to below 2 degrees Celsius (2.0° C) above preindustrial levels, and to strive to limit the temperature increase to a safer target of 1.5° C. As of now, the current trajectory of temperature rise is far off course. To successfully limit global warming to 1.5° C, ambitious and transformative policy action is needed.
To help the world reach this ambitious goal, the Stanley Foundation is engaging key stakeholders at multiple levels to determine and pursue transformational pathways necessary to reduce and remove greenhouse gas emissions to limit global warming to 1.5° C. In particular, our programming focuses on:
The foundation is part of Galvanizing the Groundswell of Climate Actions, which is working to promote stronger and more ambitious sub- and nonstate climate action and as a catalyst for transformational actions at all levels.
