Reduce the transaction costs of engaging on climate change
Increase the urgency of engaging on climate change
Provide a unique platform for Indian leadership
Build capacity to act on climate change
These goals will be achieved through the ICC’s four programmatic focus areas by building the partnerships and networks necessary to seed knowledge across the collaborative, drive awareness and advocacy on the goal and offer technical expertise and assistance.
The ICC will reduce the transaction cost of engaging to fight climate change for funders and philanthropic institutions.
The ICC will build a networked ecosystem of climate actors, that will support greater collective investments and partnerships for climate change related work, to reduce inefficiencies and enable more cost and knowledge sharing.
The ICC has a role to play in supporting the cross-pollination of ideas across its members. The collaborative is built on trust and individual relationships between ICC members and will encourage their peers to ‘get on board’.
The collaborative will create a space for a unique, democratic platform for Indian leadership for climate change and will serve as a voice for all Indian philanthropies that will directly help us work towards the achievement of our SDGs and INDCs.
Over 3 years, ICC will have increased philanthropic engagement on climate, as well as improved the quality of India’s climate debate
