About Under2 Coalition

The Under2 Coalition is a global community of state and regional governments committed to ambitious climate action in line with the Paris Agreement.

The coalition brings together more than 220 governments who represent over 1.3 billion people and 43% of the global economy. These governments include signatories to the Under2 Memorandum of Understanding as well as national endorsers and other supporters.

There are 118 individual states and regions who have signed the Under2 MOU and are currently active members of the Under2 Coalition.


Signatories commit to keeping global temperature rises to well below 2°C with efforts to reach 1.5°C. Nineteen states and regions in the coalition have committed to reaching net-zero emissions by 2050 or earlier.

In their position between national and local governments, states and regions are uniquely placed to take innovative climate action and to influence others to do the same. 


The Climate Group is the Secretariat to the Under2 Coalition and works with governments across three key workstreams.

The Climate Group also works directly with state and regional governments on capacity-building projects to support the implementation of climate policy.
