Our priority is improving understanding of and preparedness for the way that climate change will impact our institutions, systems, and lives over the next decade. We work with foundations, consultancies, businesses, NGOs, and governments to deliver concrete progress in areas like food security, critical mineral supply chains, biodiversity protection and infrastructure planning.
