CLIMATE 101: Funding Strategies in Mitigating and Adapting to Climate Change


In 2008, EGA published “Confronting the Climate Challenge: Incorporating Climate Change into Your Funding Strategies” that looked at the impacts of climate change, and linkages to current investments in areas such as health care and education. This paper tries to encapsulate the key points discussed at a May 2009 Regional Salon focusing on mitigation and adaption strategies in the south, and aims to become a tool for EGA members interested in learning more about climate change, its impacts to their communities and ways that foundations can become involved.
