The Funders Group has been established to coordinate donor collaboration on Pledge ambitions. This includes collective action to scale-up mechanisms enabling a greater share of donor funding to reach IPLC stakeholders.
The Funders Group is committed to ongoing dialogue with both IPLC leaders and wider stakeholders to facilitate exchanges of information, feedback on Pledge progress, and increase opportunities for collaboration.
Donors need to be held to account on delivery of Pledge Commitments. The Funders Group will report annually on Pledge progress to increase transparency, with the first report launched at COP27.
The Funders Group is currently chaired by the UK, and Ford Foundation as Vice Chair. The Funders Group meets quarterly to advance progress on Pledge commitments.
