Overcoming Barriers to Effective Climate Governance

The findings reported here are based on a survey that we conducted to uncover the barriers to act on Climate Change within the Board of Directors. This project was made possible through the generous support of the King Baudouin Foundation, through their call for projects “Tous chaud pour le climat / Iedereen warm voor het klimaat”. We would also like to thank Profacts for their invaluable support in designing, building and analysing the survey.

In our report, which can be downloaded here we outline the barriers & drivers for effective climate governance and outline key recommendations and actions to move forward. 

In the short video below, you can hear from Natacha Lippens, Chair of Chapter Zero Brussels and

Sandra Gobert, Executive Director of Guberna as they discuss the findings of the survey and what surprised them in the results.
