Expert Networks

Key Takeaways

Introduction

This research has focused on listing climate tech/net-zero expert networks available globally. The information available in the public domain is scanty. As a result, we have provided a list of 10 of these companies within the allotted time. We have also provided useful sources that list useful information and lists of additional climate tech/net-zero expert networks.

Tech Nation

Asia Pacific Adaptation Network (APAN)

  • Asia Pacific Adaptation Network (APAN) provides tools and resources for financing, planning, and building adaptive societies across the Pacific Region and Asia to “build more resilience against the consequences of climate change.”

C40 Cities

  • C40 enables collaboration and knowledge sharing by bringing together a network of megacities globally. Some cities that have committed to climate targets, established in the Paris Agreement, include London, New York City, Hong Kong, Johannesburg, Sydney, Tokyo, and Mexico City.

Caribbean Community Climate Change Center (CCCCC)

  • The CCCCC offers several resources and tools to help users in the Caribbean region take appropriate actions in their communities. The center “works to coordinate the Caribbean region’s response to climate change by identifying solutions.”

Climate Alliance

  • Climate Alliance is one of the largest European city networks that is dedicated to climate action. The alliance is made up of government, municipalities and districts, NGOs, and other organizations.

Climate Collaborative

These communities work locally to fight climate change with traditional ecological knowledge. CJA helps these members scale up their impact nationally by uniting them.

Gender CC

Research Strategy

The research team relied on the most credible and publicly available sources to provide climate tech/net-zero expert networks. Publicly available information was limited that would help us determine the number of climate tech/net-zero expert networks that exist or assist us in triangulating data. As requested, we focused on providing information about climate tech/net-zero expert networks, including a short description and a link to these companies. We relied on credible sources such as Food Tank, which lists organizations helping solve the climate crisis, and the Climate Technology Centre & Network (CTCN).
