Projects for our planet.

At the heart of the Summit, some 20 projects have been showcased. These projects were presented during the round tables in the morning, the Climate Agora at lunchtime and during the afternoon sessions. They illustrate the fact that concrete local and global solutions exist to address the challenges we face. They need to be stepped up and replicated, and to serve as a source of inspiration around the world. They demonstrate that we are committed to a new world, to preserve the future of our one and only planet.

Climate Reality

The Climate Reality Leadership Corps is a global network of activists committed to spreading awareness of the climate crisis and working for solutions to the greatest challenge of our time. The program, which is organized by the Al Gore founded Climate Reality Project, takes great leaders and makes them exceptional, providing training in climate science, communications and organizing in order to better tell the story of climate change and inspire communities everywhere to take action. A result is a dynamic group of world-changers shaping the conversation on climate in forums from family dinners to international summits and building a twenty-first-century movement for solutions.

Tropical Landscape Financing Facility

The Tropical Landscapes Finance Facility is an innovative financial platform with an investment focus on sustainable small-holder agriculture, and renewable energy in rural areas. The Facility consists of a Tropical Landscapes Loan Fund that intends to lend at least USD 1 billion to commercially viable projects with significant social and environmental impact in Indonesia. As the first project in an investment pipeline of about 1.6 billion USD in potential projects with positive climate impact, the Facility is investing in a 331 million USD project on the island of Sumatra, stretching across Jambi and Riau provinces.

Catalysing Fintech for Sustainability

Six global consumer goods companies and banks, and the UK government, are funding a project to test whether blockchain and other technologies can unlock financial incentives that reward sustainability in supply chains. The system would trial the concept by using a shared data system for tea farmers in Malawi that supply Unilever and Sainsbury’s. The cutting-edge technology has been developed by a collective of four Fintech startups including Provenance, that uses blockchain-based supply chain services and Halotrade, which uses smart contracts and algorithms to convert supply chain data into preferential pricing terms in banks’ systems. Landmapp will provide land rights documentation via mobile technology and FOCAFET Foundation will ensure open-source data standards are used throughout.

Hydromet : Africa Hydromet Program

The Africa Hydromet Program is a partnership of the World Bank, African Development Bank, WMO, AFD, UNDP and other partners. It supports Sub-Saharan countries in strengthening weather and climate services, end-user services (including early warning), and knowledge and advisory services. The program has mobilized financial resources for Mali, Niger, and DRC, from the World Bank, Global Environment Facility, the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery, the Climate Risks Early Warning Systems initiative, the Green Climate Fund and the Korean Green Growth Trust Fund. One such program is the Rain Cell initiative, a novel public-private partnership of private cellphone operator, Orange S.A., and public hydromet services to support data concentration, data exchange, estimation of rainfall from cellphone signal attenuation and measuring user satisfaction. This public-private partnership model is being piloted by the Bank in Burkina Faso and will be scaled up.
