Club of Madrid, United Nations Foundation

In 2007, the Club of Madrid and the United Nations Foundation committed to launch the Global Leadership for Climate Action Initiative (GLCA)to mobilize political will and feed into the international UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) negotiation process. To achieve these objectives, several global outreach, awareness-building, and advocacy activities have been organized among various stakeholders and decision-makers.
GLCA's activities build upon a framework of recommendations for Post-2012 Agreement on Climate Change, formulated in 2007, and subsequent Annual Updates in 2008 and 2009. GLCA continues to be committed to facilitating global climate change agreement while also investigating new aspects of the climate change crisis such as climate justice and the role of urban areas.
Members of the GLCA advocated for its recommendations and engaged leading figures in climate change and sustainable development at 2 major international meetings. Meetings were also held with foreign affairs delegates to discuss progress towards COP16 and how individuals from the GLCA may contribute towards its effectiveness from their respective countries.GLCA continues its commitment to a global climate change agreement while also investigating new aspects of the climate change crisis, such as climate justice and the role of urban areas.
