Food: the hidden key to landscape restoration and a planet-positive future?
That’s the question our Programme Manager Annelies Withofs asked Willem Ferwerda, CEO of our partner Commonland, and Sharla Halvorson, Global Health & Sustainability Manager for Food at Inter IKEA Group.
📣 CleanAirFund’s latest report shows that only 1% of international development funding and 2% of international climate funding has gone towards air pollution in the last six years.
CleanAirFund’s mission is to tackle global air pollution and deliver clean air for all 🌍 However, the fight against air pollution is still underfunded.
Radical collaboration is necessary to create a future where everyone can breathe clean air 🧑🤝🧑 We call upon other funders to join us now.

New York Climate Week brought together climate leaders from around the world to drive climate action 🌍
The task at hand may, at times, seem unsurmountable. And we’re falling behind in our targets to achieve the Paris agreement.
Yet, at IKEA Foundation, we’re optimistic as we see many of the solutions to the climate crisis around us 🙌
During New York Climate Week, we collaborated with our partners to announce new initiatives for #PeopleAndPlanet 💚
We believe we can and we will achieve the climate action that is desperately needed. Do you?
📣 We call on other funders to join us now.
