Tara Foundation (European Climate Foundation)

Tara is a new philanthropic initiative.

Tara’s vision is a just and thriving Asia powered by renewable energy, and its mission is to support a diverse group of partners to accelerate Asia’s energy transformation. Tara funds think tanks, civil society, research organizations and other non-state actors, and our mandate includes Southeast Asia, East Asia excluding China, and South Asia excluding India.

Initially established as an initiative under the European Climate Foundation (ECF), Tara aims to branch completely away from ECF in 2021 to become Asia’s first regional climate and energy foundation. As an Asian-based and Asian-led foundation, Tara aims to put philanthropy to work in a way that maximises our impact on Asia’s climate and energy transition goals.
