New Clean Air Fund launched
First announced at the United Nations Climate Change Summit in September, the Clean Air Fund has received USD 50 million in initial funding, which is nearly double the figure raised by the philanthropic community for air pollution support in the whole of 2018.
Donations have come from philanthropic foundations with a range of focus areas, including health, climate, mobility, and children. Funding partners include IKEA Foundation, Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, Bernard van Leer Foundation, Oak Foundation, Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity and the FIA Foundation.
