The Bezos Earth Fund & WWF: investment in community and climate
Nature underpins human health, and climate is critical to maintaining our planet’s balance. As the global climate warms at an accelerated pace, it threatens to break the natural systems that provide us with food and water and nurture our well-being. Yet, if protected, these same systems can be a vital part of the climate solution. The Bezos Earth Fund has awarded World Wildlife Fund (WWF) $100 million to harness the power of nature to stabilize the climate crisis. WWF is profoundly grateful for this transformational investment, and the impact this commitment will have on millions of people around the world.
The grant funds three areas of work:
To deliver on global climate goals, we must cut emissions in half by 2030; this will require extraordinary financial support to test new approaches and scale proven solutions. The Bezos Earth Fund’s commitment sends an important signal to other institutions about the urgency of this crisis. WWF is honored to partner with grantees, governments, communities and others to accelerate climate solutions.
