Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of €150,000 (approximately $166,305 at the time of conversion) to the Global Commission on Governing Risks from Climate Overshoot. The Commission aims to bring together leaders from developing and developed countries to recommend strategies to reduce risks from potential climate overshoot (the global temperature increasing by more than 1.5 degrees Celsius before cooling back down). It plans to develop governance frameworks for:
- Adapting to higher temperatures in vulnerable areas
- Removing carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from the atmosphere
- Solar radiation management
The Commission’s findings will inform future global discussions on climate risks at the United Nations and elsewhere.
