IISD is a driving force in tackling the biggest challenge facing the world today—climate change.    

We know that when the world takes action together, we can make profound and lasting impact. By backing major initiatives like fossil fuel subsidy reform and climate adaptation planning, we will use our expertise to:

  • Directly support clean and just energy transitions in Canada and large emerging economies through advisory and advocacy work.
  • Advocate for fossil fuel subsidy reform through our Global Subsidies Initiative.
  • Increase the resilience of developing countries to climate shocks and stresses, including by growing the NAP Global Network.
  • Drive action on climate adaptation in Canada, leveraging our global and Prairies-focused expertise.
