Many key infrastructure investments needed to meet climate objectives require cohesive, coordinated action between multiple actors and jurisdictions. Collective impact approaches advocate the identification and prioritization of shared outcomes and associated targets. The timing, quantity, and match-ability of available funding, however, can strongly influence climate project prioritization and implementation. As can the requirement of many organizations to stay ‘financially whole’ as they consider the deep capital investment, speculative operating costs and new roles or responsibilities that transformational climate action demands. This fireside chat explores the needs, opportunities, and challenges of advancing large-scale climate projects, the issue of legacy systems, and how the better capture and integration of strategic and financial data within and between organizations might support climate project prioritization and accelerated progress.
