World Resources Institute
World Resources Institute (WRI) is a global research organization that spans more than 60 countries, with offices in Africa, Brazil, China, Europe, India, Indonesia, Mexico, and the United States. WRI’s more than 1,000 experts and staff turn big ideas into action at the nexus of environment, economic opportunity, and human well-being.
With support from the Pisces Foundation, WRI has worked with partners to scale up national ambition to achieve the Paris Agreement goals, with a specific focus on mitigating short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs). WRI’s research shows that by setting stronger targets and actions to address potent SLCPs, countries have a better chance of delivering on their global commitments to hold global temperatures below catastrophic levels, while also achieving sustainable development. Momentum is growing. To date, more 30 countries have indicated their intention to include strengthened SLCP actions when they submit their next round of national climate plans under the Paris Agreement by 2020.
