Showcasing Progress: Momentum for Change Lighthouse Activities

The UNFCCC secretariat showcased some positive actions in the areas of innovative finance, women and the urban poor. The Momentum for Change Lighthouse Activities were showcased at the Conference of the Parties and the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol.

Momentum for Change provides a public platform to highlight broad-ranging climate change actions that are already achieving tangible results on the ground. By shining light on inspiring and transformational mitigation and adaptation activities, Momentum for Change aims to strengthen motivation, spur innovation and catalyse further change towards a low-emission, high resilient future.

The map (see link below) shows all Momentum for Change lighthouse activity winners. In 2011 and 2012 all the activities fall under the Urban Poor pillar, which is implemented with the generous support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. At the end of 2012 two new pillars were launched: Women for Results, implemented with the generous support of the Rockefeller Foundation amd Financing for Climate-Friendly Investment, implemented in partnership with the World Economic Forum. The 2013 lighthouse activities were selected from all three pillars.
