Global Network for Climate Solutions (GNCS)

  • In 2009, Planet Heritage seeded the development and launch of GNCS.
  • The network is hosted at the Earth Institute, Columbia University, under the leadership of Dr. Jeffrey Sachs and overseen by two global project Boards, one for adaptation and one for mitigation.
  • The Adaptation Program interacts with a range of institutes in developing countries to inform adaptation efforts and plans for global adaptation financing.
  • The Mitigation Program is developing a format for comparing the actions that individual countries can take to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, with a focus on sectors and individual gases. Simultaneously, a network of contributing organizations with in-country knowledge is assisting in developing data for this format.
