IISD is a driving force in tackling the world’s greatest challenge—climate change.
The science is clear—our climate is changing, and the change is caused by human activity.
We can still make a difference. But we must act together. When the world takes coordinated action, we know profound and lasting impacts can follow.
IISD is actively involved in the two main responses to climate change: adaptation and mitigation. We partner with countries to help them cope with a changing climate and transition to clean energy as quickly as possible. By backing major initiatives like fossil fuel subsidy reform and climate adaptation planning, we use our expertise to lessen the flow and concentration of heat-trapping greenhouse gases and help people build a more resilient future.
Global Subsidies Initiative
The Global Subsidies Initiative was designed to put the spotlight on subsidies and the corrosive effects they can have on environmental quality, economic development, and governance.
NAP Global Network
The NAP Global Network works with partners in the world’s most vulnerable countries to develop and implement plans to make communities, ecosystems, and economies more resilient to the impacts of climate change.
Climate Change Adaptation
As climate risks escalate, we help governments and communities anticipate, cope, and adapt.
Fossil fuel subsidies make little sense in a world shifting to low-carbon sources of energy to tackle climate change.
We work to identify wasteful practices, encourage new thinking, engage civil society, and support policy reform.
Energy Policy Tracker
Providing a detailed, real-world picture of the current state of support for different energy types in recovery packages around the world.
Nature for Climate Adaptation Initiative
A new initiative aims to support nature-based climate action that protects livelihoods and biodiversity in the most vulnerable parts of the world.
IISD is focused on supporting the World Trade Organization negotiations to end harmful fisheries subsidies.
