Who we are
The Humboldt-Viadrina Governance Platform is a not-for-profit, limited liability company, based in Berlin, Germany. We promote democratic processes and thought-through governance strategies in Germany, Europe and worldwide. The Humboldt-Viadrina is hosting the International Secretariat of Climate Transparency, in collaboration with Climate Analytics. Climate Transparency is a global partnership with a shared mission to stimulate a ‘race to the top’ in G20 climate action and to shift investments towards zero-carbon technologies through enhanced transparency. The partnership’s annual Climate Transparency Report compares the climate performance of G20 countries in the areas of mitigation action, finance and vulnerability. The report and outreach activities increase awareness and peer pressure among policy makers of G20 governments and influencers from civil society and the financial sector on a national and international level. The report has become a key reference for many decision makers. The partnership is financed through the International Climate Initiative (IKI), ClimateWorks Foundation, the German Federal Foreign Office, European Climate Foundation (ECF), and the World Bank.
