Momentum for Change: Lighthouse Activities

 

 Momentum for Change provides a public platform to highlight broad-ranging climate change actions that are already achieving real results on the ground. By shining light on the most inspiring and transformational mitigation and adaptation activities, known as 'Lighthouse Activities', Momentum for Change aims to strengthen motivation, spur innovation and catalyse further change towards a low-emission, high-resilient future. The Lighthouse Activities are showcased at the annual United Nations climate change conferences.

The map below shows all Momentum for Change Lighthouse Activity winners. All of the activities in 2011 and 2012 fall under the Urban Poor focus area, which is implemented with the generous support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. At the end of 2012, two focus areas were launched: Women for Results, implemented with the generous support of The Rockefeller Foundation and Financing for Climate Friendly Investment, implemented in partnership with the World Economic Forum Global Project on Climate Change. The 2013 Lighthouse Activities were selected from all three focus areas. In 2013, a fourth focus area was launched: ICT Solutions, implemented in partnership with the Global e-Sustainability Initiative.

Following a successful three-year relationship with The Rockefeller Foundation, the secretariat re-launched Women for Results in 2016 with a focus on the role of women as innovators especially in the renewable energy and energy efficiency sectors. Momentum for Change is pleased to partner with Masdar’s Women in Sustainability, Environment and Renewable Energy (WiSER) initiative to implement Women for Results.

The WiSER initiative and Momentum for Change share a common theme; empower and inspire women to be catalysts of innovation and drivers of new companies and commercial solutions that secure access to energy, water and food while mitigating climate change. The Momentum for Change initiative has had great success with ‘Women for Results’ and the partnership with WiSER will help ensure that this is taken to the next level in the future.
