Climate change mitigation strategies research

About our approach

We start our research for top climate nonprofits by performing a broad sweep of potential climate solutions across geographies, technologies, and sectors. This process allows us to identify solution areas that might be particularly promising, overlooked and/or underfunded.

We then longlist and shortlist organizations that operate in prioritized solution areas. For shortlisted organizations, we conduct deep dives to thoroughly examine each organization by mapping out its theory of change to test whether it’s likely to hold, build cost-effectiveness models, assess room for more funding, consider any co-benefits and adverse effects, and make a final recommendation decision. Our top recommendations can be found here.

The following research reports capture our findings during every stage of this process. We share all research reports publicly to encourage dialogue, and we value your feedback.
