The Philanthropic Sector Must Remain Focused on Paris Climate Targets

Many of the major climate commitments agreed on in Paris last December were made voluntarily, and now is the time to ramp up engagement to keep the international community on track, says Michael Northrop, sustainable development program director at the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, in an article featured in Alliance Magazine. Northrop was a guest editor for the June 2016 issue, which focuses on opportunities for the philanthropic sector to strengthen the impact of the landmark UN conference, especially in areas like sustainable cities, renewable energy, and reforestation.

Other contributors to the issue include Architecture 2030 founder Ed Mazria, Wallace Global Fund executive director Ellen Dorsey, May Boeve and Bill McKibben of, and Partnership on Women’s Entrepreneurship in Renewables’ director Wanjira Maathai.
