Climate and Resilience

Helping to increase capital flows into climate and resilience solutions and projects that improve the lives of the world’s most vulnerable people

From earthquakes to rising sea levels, people all over the world are increasingly threatened by destructive natural disasters and the impacts of rapid changes in our climate. We believe it is possible to help make communities around the world more resilient to the physical, social, and economic challenges of the 21st century.

The Rockefeller Foundation is committed to tackling these immense challenges, which require creative, blended capital solutions to address at scale.  Our Climate and Resilience initiative identifies, designs and supports opportunities that increase climate and resilience capital flows into financial solutions, companies and projects that have a positive impact on the lives of world’s most vulnerable people. It also integrates climate and resilience principles throughout the Foundation’s work in food, health, power and economic mobility, in addition to coordinating grant making for disaster recovery situations.
