Faces of Climate Resilience by the Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW), in partnership with India Climate Collaborative, Edelgive Foundation and Drokpa Films, captures voices from some of India's most climate-vulnerable regions, such as Kerala, Maharashtra, Odisha, Rajasthan and Uttarakhand using multimedia. The project strives to make climate change more tangible beyond data through lived experiences. It highlights how individuals and communities at India's grassroots are adapting to the climate crisis and building resilience. Faces of Climate Resilience won the 2023 CMCC Climate Change Communication Award "Rebecca Ballestra"

The India Climate Collaborative (ICC) is a collective working to identify critical sectors that need investment, drive funding towards climate solutions, and enable private and corporate philanthropy to engage more effectively with climate action. We work closely with the climate ecosystem, including research organisations, implementers, government stakeholders, businesses, and more, as well as engage with our domestic and international donor base to ensure that funding flows towards high-impact climate solutions. Recognising that the climate ecosystem in India often operates in silos, we use our unique position to convene a variety of stakeholders and increase knowledge sharing, collaboration, and collective action. The ICC is legally registered as the Council of Philanthropies for Climate Action. The ICC works closely with EdelGive Foundation through the ICC-EdelGive Foundation Alliance, which aims to further climate efforts by identifying key fundable opportunities in mitigation, adaptation, and building the capacity of the climate ecosystem.

EdelGive Foundation is a grant-making organization, helping build and expand philanthropy in India by funding and supporting the growth of small to mid-sized grassroots NGOs committed to empowering vulnerable children, women, and communities. This approach has enabled the foundation to be a go-to partner of choice for Indian and foreign funders wanting to engage with the Indian development ecosystem. Over the last 13 years, EdelGive has supported over 150 organizations across 111 districts in 14 states of India, influencing commitments of over INR 4.61 billion in philanthropy.
