As of 30 11 2016 Save the Lake Foundation has been accepted in the 100 Climate Solution of the R20 - Regions of Climate Action
We are particularly honored to be chosen by their illustrious Board:
with Mr. Arnold Schwarzenegger as Founding Chair,
Ms. Michèle Sabban (Fond Mondial des Villes) as President
and Prof. Daniel C. Esty (Yale University, Director of Centre for Business and the Environment) as Secretary.
The Mission of R20 is:
To help sub-national governments around the world to develop and communicate low-carbon and climate resilient economic development projects.
The ideal pipeline of clean energy projects is not currently happening, even though intergovernmental bodies, national governments, sub-national governments, NGOs, academics, technology providers, public and private financial partners share the same vision and want concrete action. This is due to a number of factors:
- national and sub-national politicians lack awareness of the long-term political, technical and financial solutions for a sustainable safe, clean economy;
- project developers do not know how to identify, design and communicate the right information to project investors;
- project investors are not sure how low-carbon investments fit into their existing investment instruments and portfolios.
The R20 addresses those factors to help build an effective green deal flow at sub-national level. This is made possible by connecting Regions, Technology and Finance to build sustainable low-carbon projects.
We are convinced that this collaboration will present a powerful boost in public awareness of the critical situation the Nairobi Dam is in.
