International platform of foundations and philanthropy calls upon the G20 Heads to increase actions on climate change and future resilience

The annual G20 flagship event of the international foundation platform F20, the Climate Solutions Forum, gathered more than 170 guests on the ground in India’s capital New Delhi on June 8, 2023, as well as a large number online from around the world. The purpose was to discuss the most pressing global challenges, including scaling up renewable energy worldwide, building resilience to the climate crisis at all levels, and mobilizing financial resources. The international conference was hosted by the F20 Foundation Platform and the Dasra Foundation, together with the co-organizing Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation. The Asian Venture Philanthropy Network (AVPN), the Centre for Asian Philanthropy and Society (CAPS) and Climate RISE were recruited as network partners.

With the F20 Recommendations, which were published at the end of the Climate Solutions Forum, the more than 80 foundations call on the heads of state and government of the G20 countries to take stronger action against climate change and to implement the UN Sustainable Development Goals more ambitiously.
