Following this year’s United Nations Climate Action Summit, the outlook was clear - greater ambition is needed, at all levels of government. In addition, the role of state and regional governments to drive forward ambitious and urgent change is more prominent than ever.

Now in its third year, the Future Fund is continuing to grow and play a key role in empowering developing and emerging economy regions to raise the bar and accelerate the transition towards a world of well below 2°C of warming.

In the past year, the Future Fund has facilitated three peer-learning secondments and one knowledge building project to support Under2 Coalition members to strengthen their response to climate change and develop stronger mitigation capacities. It has also supported more than 20 governments to make their voice heard at the Global Climate Action Summit and the Under2 Coalition General Assembly.

We would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to the governments of Baden- Württemberg, Québec, Scotland and Wales for their financial contributions to the Future Fund - their commitment to strengthening the action of their developing and emerging economy peers has demonstrated climate leadership on a global scale.

As we head into the 2020s, a critical decade for climate action, the importance of raising ambition and accelerating implementation is clear and so we'd like to invite all governments, as well as philanthropic and individual donors, to support their peers in developing and emerging economy regions to reach their potential by contributing to the Future Fund.
