The GDP is a university-wide research center focused on global development that puts a premium on global engagement to generate concrete policy and insert it into the global discourse. Bulb Foundation’s support is focused on their new initiative that pulls together Global South think tanks to provide technical and policy recommendations to the IMF to ensure investments support an environmentally and socially sustainable development path in the global south post-covid. The Foundation’s funding has been allocated to support the Global South organisations’ participation.

Justicia Ambiental [subgrant of Re:Common]
JA!, which means Now! in English, works very closely with communities on environmental issues such as the cutting down of forests, pollution, dams, oil exploration and people’s access to clean water.
Presidential Climate Commission
The Presidential Climate Commission aims to build a social compact around a Just Climate Transition. In building a low carbon, climate resilient economy and society, we need to ensure decent work for all, social inclusion, and the eradication of poverty. We need to protect those most vulnerable to climate change, including women, children, people with disabilities, the poor and the unemployed, and protect workers’ jobs and livelihoods. The PCC facilitates dialogue between social partners on these issues, in particular the type of society we want to achieve, and detailed pathways for how to get there.
