Mastercard is responding to President Biden’s “Call to Action” to the private sector to address climate adaptation challenges and support the President’s Emergency Plan for Adaptation and Resilience (PREPARE).
We announced a new partnership at COP27 with @BFA Global to join The CIFAR Alliance, which is dedicated to accelerating innovative fintech-enabled solutions to help vulnerable populations build resilience and adapt to climate change in the Global South. This includes a new climate-smart product innovation hub and field-building efforts to accelerate fintech solutions for resilience. We must catalyze a thriving innovation ecosystem to deliver the affordable, appropriate climate resilience solutions that people need.
We’re also committing to bring 30 million people onto our Community Pass platform over the next five years, giving them access to critical services, and we’re doubling down on our Priceless Planet Coalition efforts to fight climate change through forest restoration, in collaboration with experts Conservation International and World Resources Institute
Thank you Administrator Samantha Power and Director Brian Deese for your leadership.
