Project Drawdown

The world's leading resource for climate solutions.

Project Drawdown’s mission is to help the world reach “drawdown”—the point in the future when levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere stop climbing and start to steadily decline, thereby halting catastrophic climate change—as quickly, safely, and equitably as possible.

Drawdown Lift deepens collective understanding of the connections between climate change solutions and poverty alleviation, particularly in countries in Africa and South Asia.

Launched in 2021, Drawdown Lift advances evidence for and disseminates knowledge about climate solutions that have multiple benefits for boosting well-being, strengthening resilience, and contributing to poverty alleviation in rural communities in Africa and South Asia. Drawdown Lift works alongside academic researchers, practitioners, and changemakers to identify and advance solutions to catalyze positive, equitable change, pursue low-carbon development pathways, and advance socioeconomic development in emerging economy countries.
