Climate Change

Catalyzing attention, funding, and action to promote resilience to climate change.

Climate change and its impacts – more variable temperatures and rainfall, extreme weather events, and rising sea levels – are accelerating the pace and intensity of the shocks and stresses facing communities globally. Cities are particularly vulnerable because of their concentration of people and assets, as well as the degradation of protective ecosystems. Without savings or voices in decision-making, the urban poor bear the brunt of these impacts.

The Rockefeller Foundation takes a holistic view of how climate change impacts the earth’s systems, human health, and cities, working to reduce the disruption caused by climate change consequences, while also improving lives, livelihoods, and the health of our planet.
