The Latin America Regional Climate Initiative is a Non-Governmental Organization created by the ClimateWorks Foundation, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Oak Philanthropy, and the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation as a collaborative project to contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from and the overall prosperity of countries in Latin America. LARCI’s objective is to catalyse world-leading climate policy at a national and city level level across the power, transport, and waste sectors in Latin America, with a particular emphasis on Mexico and Brazil.

In its short history, LARCI has made major strides toward leadership in addressing climate change in Latin America. It has added a team of leading advocates and technical experts, and developed procedures for managing its grant making, finances, reporting, and operations.
