"The Rockefeller Foundation and the IKEA Foundation join forces
to set up a historic $1 billion global platform to fight climate
change and energy poverty", says Dr. Rajiv Shah, President of the
Rockefeller Foundation. "The platform aims to reduce 1 billion
tons of greenhouse gas emissions and to empower 1 billion people
with distributed renewable energy."


In a special English edition of "Der Große Neustart" - the German
podcast series by Sibylle Barden, Dr. Shah talks about the urgent
need to deliver clean and reliable power to the 800 million
people worldwide who lack electricity. "We need a new Covid
Charter", he says and is ready to re-imagine the Bretton Woods
institutions: "Multilateral development banks can lend far more
if allowed. They could unlock up to a trillion dollars in new
lending while still maintaining their AAA ratings." He also talks
about the difficult transformation of his organisation to become
"part of the solution to solve the climate change issues of our
time."
