Future Fund

Established in 2017, the Future Fund is a unique Under2 Coalition project developed for the members and by the members.

About the initiative

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.

Graphic with text: 5 years of the Future Fund

We're celebrating five years of the Future Fund

Since its launch in 2017, the Future Fund has achieved a lot. Take a look at the highlights from the past five years: 

Funding priorities


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.


The Future Fund was launched at COP22 in Marrakech, with founding contributions from Under2 Coalition governments.
