To achieve the ultimate objective of our organization, which is minimizing the detrimental effects of biases in climate solution pathways, we have identified economic and societal sectors that will be significantly impacted by climate change. During the early phase of our launch, we will reach out to these sectors to gain their support. If you would like to join that effort, please contact us.
All economic and societal sectors are being affected by global warming and its climate change effects. Each sector must make decisions on which climate solutions it will support. Most of these decisions are now being made on the basis of public passions, vested interests and political agendas.
Global Climate Collaboration is seeking volunteers to develop short-form sector-focused proposals in support of our initiative. Thus far, we have developed one short-form proposal for the insurance sector. We encourage you to join a sector team. Contact us today!
National economies depend upon healthy commerce, and vibrant interchange among companies and professionals. Trade associations within economic sectors or professional disciplines contribute to achieving those ends. Global warming challenges affect all of us and therefore should be a concern of trade associations. The Wicked Problem Approach can be useful to trade associations in planning their transitions to carbon-neutral energy.
The definition of philanthropy is “to promote the welfare of others, expressed especially by the generous donation of money to good causes.” We are all threatened by global warming. The Wicked Problem Approach can help philanthropies figure out how to wisely invest their charitable donations to best help those in most need.
Every company must consider the ramifications of climate change to the operations of their business, such as the impacts it will have on their supply chains. The Wicked Problem Approach can help companies make decisions as they confront uncertainties arising from global warming.
These societies and organizations, which are founded for educational, social, and research purposes, can grow while impacting climate change. The wicked problem approach will help show how their backgrounds can assist in the overall effort.
The greatest risk in the insurance sector deals with investments in climate solutions to achieve the transition to a net-zero-carbon global economy. Engineering analysis through the iterative project management methodology of the Wicked Problem Approach will reduce this risk.
Further information on the role of wicked problem solving in the insurance industry is provided here.
Virtually all national governments recognize the need for action to resolve global warming. In the U.S., virtually all state governments recognize this need. In the U.S., 470 U.S. mayors have united in the initiative Climate Mayors to do something about climate change. The Wicked Problem Approach can help cities, states, and nations make decisions on investments in climate solutions that will best accomplish mitigation, adaptation and resilience.
The Council on Foundations defines a foundation as an entity that supports charitable activities by making grants to unrelated organizations or institutions or to individuals for scientific, educational, cultural, religious, or other charitable purposes. Resolving global warming and its climate change effects is a concern of many Foundations. The Wicked Problem Approach can help Foundations to make decisions on grant requests associated with global warming or climate change.
Many members of the Climate Collaboration team are also people of faith. Through their contacts and networks they are able to reach and mobilize large numbers of people who are committed to a keeping the Earth healthy.
This is a possible source of funding from small, individual donors who are concerned about climate change.
Our program will collaborate and partner with universities. The goal is to submit innovative research grant applications to research councils and other funding bodies on climate change to enable us to deliver a distinct work package, as part of the GCC.
Private Equity Organizations
These organizations can invest in companies that are working to reduce green house gas emissions and are working to develop technologies to fight climate change.
Climate Action Organizations
We are collaborating with other groups to sum up activities into an overall global action plan.
