Pull the levers and set the filters on the first publicly accessible and interactive Climate Finance Ecosystem tool to empower everyone with a big picture of climate finance. Participants will be able to query and explore the patterns and correlations in the beta version of this climate finance map, which synthesizes private investments and grants to over 7,000 U.S.-based companies and non-profits. The goal: help funders and ecosystem-builders explore who is funding what across all climate-relevant sectors, find and convene collaborators, and identify what type of capital could be most effective where.
The climate crisis is an “all hands on deck” problem – yet none of the hands can see what the others are doing. It is impossible for decentralized funders to effectively address such a systemic problem without, at minimum, being able to easily see who is doing what and what kind of money is going where. In the next decade, trillions of dollars in investment/funding decisions will be made in the next decade across both climate mitigation and climate adaptation. The Climate Finance Ecosystem tool will provide a critical foundation for those decentralized decisions to be more strategically and collectively impactful.
This workshop will demo the U.S.-focused version and preview the global map under development by Vibrant Data Labs, in collaboration with ImpactAlpha, RTI, Primer.ai, Crunchbase and Candid.
