Project Drawdown, Gates Institute and ICFP Celebrated #EarthDay2022

2018 Winners of EXCELL Award celebrating on-stage

Since the 2017 publication of the New York Times bestseller Drawdown, the organization has emerged as a leading resource for information and insight about climate solutions. They continue to develop that resource by conducting rigorous review and assessment of climate solutions, creating compelling and human communication across media, and partnering with efforts to accelerate climate solutions globally.

Just recently released, Climate–Poverty Connections: Opportunities for synergistic solutions at the intersection of planetary and human well-being fact sheet provides a summary of concrete evidence of how climate solutions can also be win-win opportunities for meeting development and human well-being needs while boosting prosperity for rural communities in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.

Project Drawdown, Gates Institute and the 2022 International Conference on Family Planning celebrated Earth Day 2022 together learning from Project Drawdown Director Kristen P. Patterson.
