About the initative
The Future Fund empowers subnational governments to accelerate the shift towards a world of under 2°C of warming, through strategic funding that supports climate activities in developing and emerging economy regions.
The role of developing and emerging economy regions is fundamental to make a difference to the world’s climate system. Not only can these regions contribute to a decarbonised world, but implementing mitigation measures can carry significant and much-needed health and socioeconomic benefits to local populations.
However, these regions have traditionally struggled to find resources to join international climate networks, participate in meetings, develop mitigation capacities or share lessons learned due to various resource constraints.

Engaging in Under2 Coalition activities through capacity building
We aim to provide support on developing 2050 pathways, implementing innovative policy solutions and establishing robust inventories through direct funding to selected regions.
Participating in international negotiations through active engagement and network expansion
We work on recruitment and active engagement with governments from developing and emerging economy regions to commit to the Under2 Coalition’s goals and participate in our programs and events.
Fostering knowledge exchange
We aim to encourage peer-to-peer learning through secondments between developing and developed regions on relevant climate policies and actions.
