To have any hope of reaching net zero and halting the progress of climate change, we need deep and comprehensive collaboration between the public and private sectors worldwide. I was encouraged by today’s discussions about how to accelerate innovation.
Half of the emission reductions needed to reach the 2050 climate goals rely on technologies in early development or prototype stages. Accelerating innovation and investments during this decade is critical to making low-carbon technologies cost-competitive and to building green supply chains.
What steps are needed to drive climate innovation and make zero-emission technologies the most affordable, accessible and attractive choice?

The omicron surge is an unfortunate reminder that the only way to eliminate the threat of COVID-19 somewhere is to eliminate it everywhere. That’s why @gatesfoundation is joining @wellcometrust to renew our investment in @CEPIvaccines.
The fight to eradicate HIV is far from over, but incredible progress has been made through scientific innovation, activism, and collective global action. These lessons provide a path forward with COVID-19 and hope for preventing the next pandemic.
Through my foundation work I'm very lucky to have the opportunity to talk to—and learn from—experts in many different fields. Many of my conversations recently have been about the omicron variant and how to prevent the next pandemic.
Guess what- tomorrow I’ll be chatting with @BillGates on twitter about Omicron, COVID & global health. What would you like to know? 👂 Send along any questions you have about the current COVID situation, how we move on from this pandemic and prevent future ones.
Understanding how the connections in our brains give rise to consciousness and our ability to learn may help lead to great breakthroughs in the way we solve the world’s hardest problems. This is one of the most fascinating books I read this year.
The world has lost a hero. Archbishop Desmond Tutu led with his values, empathy and optimism. He put everyone he met at ease with his incredible laugh and energy. He inspired me with his sense of purpose to build peace out of the struggle of oppression. I will miss him greatly.
Just when it seemed like life would return to normal, we could be entering the worst part of the pandemic. Omicron will hit home for all of us. Close friends of mine now have it, and I’ve canceled most of my holiday plans.
I spoke to Prime Minister @Kishida230 about his new global health strategy and Japan’s commitment to the world’s poorest people. I’m encouraged to see this pledge and Japan’s recent leadership of the @WBG_IDA and Nutrition for Growth summits.
Japan makes record $3.4 bln pledge to World Bank arm for low-income countries
Japan pledged $3.4 billion in its largest contribution to the International Development Association (IDA) of the World Bank, to ensure the recovery of low-income countries from the COVID-19 pandemic, finance ministry officials said on Tuesday.
The Omicron variant is concerning, but the world is better prepared to tackle potentially bad variants than at any other point in the pandemic. Here’s why I’m still hopeful the end of the COVID-19 pandemic is finally in sight:
Great to meet with @MohamedbinZayed again to recognize Niger’s progress in the fight against neglected tropical diseases. His commitment to this fight, to polio eradication and to disease elimination at large will help save millions of lives.
The announcement by Niger that it has eradicated river blindness is a milestone in the fight against neglected tropical diseases. Through initiatives such as the Reaching The Last Mile Fund, we remain committed to working with our partners to support these crucial global efforts https://t.co/CjkWVB5IyB
