If you are working on climate policy, carbon pricing, sustainable development, disaster relief and preparedness, food security, water scarcity or any of the many related areas of interest that will be affected by the Paris climate treaty, please join this coalition and help us to do the heavy lift, to secure an agreement that moves every nation toward a price on carbon that will stave off climate disaster and build a stronger, more resilient economy, locally and globally.
