On Thursday, November 9th of 2022, BASE was officially launched. This announcement took place during a press conference at COP27 in Sharm El-Sheikh.  

Together with our partners and aligned initiatives, we launched BASE during COP27. We held a press conference to share the official launch of the Initiative where we collaborate with partners and aligned initiatives on a specific challenge: achieving greater and better access to climate financing at the local level, developing different approaches to develop a climate rationale in a simpler, quicker and more meaningful way for the communities.  

We also unveiled our next step: the inaugural call for grants aimed at implementing climate solutions in the Global South. These grants will be specifically directed towards organizations and initiatives working closely with our partners and focusing on tropical forests.
