The Global Centre on Biodiversity for Climate (GCBC) is a UK Official Development Assistance (ODA) programme that funds research into natural solutions to climate change and poverty.
By working in partnership with scientists, academics, and research institutions in the Global South and North, we seek to develop innovative and scalable approaches to the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity that deliver climate solutions and improve livelihoods. The GCBC seeks to support delivery of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, Global Biodiversity Framework and Paris Agreement, and help countries achieve a nature-positive future.
The GCBC is funded by the UK’s Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) with International Climate Finance and managed in partnership with DAI. Royal Botanic Gardens Kew is the Strategic Science Lead.
