International Institute for Sustainable Development

The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) is an international, multidisciplinary, and not-for-profit policy research organization. Through its head office in Winnipeg, Manitoba and its branches in Ottawa, Ontario; New York, NY; and Geneva, Switzerland IISD applies human ingenuity to help improve the well-being of the world's environment, economy and society.

IISD’s mission – to champion innovation, enabling societies to live sustainably – supports the addressing of SLCPs through sound policy research, information exchange, analysis and advocacy.

IISD views the challenges associated with addressing SLCPs within the larger context of supporting a transition to low-carbon, climate resilient development. We work at the nexus of mitigation and adaptation policy, and fundamentally understand the role that both play in addressing the challenges associated with climate change. Our work seeks to identify near term-strategies that can bear ‘low hanging fruit’, understanding that such actions must be supported by long-term and robust frameworks to support low-carbon, climate resilient development.   

A number of IISD’s Climate Change and Energy program’s activities speak to this interest, built around three key objectives:

  • Developing integrated energy and climate strategies that enable low-carbon development.
  • Enhancing international capacity to address climate change through adaptation, risk reduction and building resilience.
  • Continuing to be a catalyst in the international climate negotiations.

CCAC Mid-term Review Survey

Since its launch with six country partners and UNEP in 2012, the Climate and Clean Air Coalition to Reduce Short-Lived Climate Pollutants (CCAC) has grown rapidly to now encompass 46 state partners and 54 non-state partners by January 2015. In order to help formulating a common vision and strategy to scale up actions locally and globally the Coalition is undertaking a small-scale midterm review between January and April 2015. The results of the review will inform the development of the five-year strategic plan for the Coalition, 2016-2020.

Included in the methodology of this mid-term review is an online survey addressed to all Coalition Partners, CCAC actors, initiative implementers and other stakeholders outside the Coalition. The survey is open until 5 FEBRUARY 2015, and all answers are anonymous.

We welcome you to take the next few minutes to submit your answers by clicking on any of the links to the right. You may take the survey in either English or French.
