This is an opportunity open to governments, organizations, cities, industries, universities, and others taking leadership on climate change and implementing innovative projects in the field of climate action.

The 2020 Global Climate Action Awards will recognize the world’s most innovative actions with replicable and scalable activities focused on addressing climate change and the winners will be celebrated at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP 26) in Glasgow in November 2020.

Regions4 highly encourages your regional government to apply for this recognition. Please, take into consideration that the categories available are:

  1. Climate Neutral Now: recognizing efforts by individuals, companies and governments that are achieving real results in transitioning to climate neutrality.
  2. Women for Results: recognizing the critical leadership and participation of women in addressing climate change.
  3. Financing for Climate Friendly Investment: recognizing successful financial innovations for adaptation and climate mitigation.

The award’s Advisory Panel, made up of senior experts from various fields and countries, will select the 2020 winners. The panel is part of the secretariat’s Momentum for Change initiative, which operates in partnership with Climate Neutral Now, donors supporting the implementation of the UNFCCC Gender Action Plan, and the World Economic Forum Global Project on Climate Change.

Applications for the 2020 UN Global Climate Action Award will be accepted until 30 April 2020 here.
