12 donor countries are Members of the CREWS Initiative.  

France, the founding Member, launched CREWS at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP21) in Paris in 2015.  Since then, a growing membership and sustained financial support have seen our operational investments expand –geographically and in scope – year-on-year. Only Members have decision-making powers through the Steering Committee. They are represented by government nominees.  

CREWS is an example of what multilateralism should be about. It is a multilateralism of solidarity, which is reactive, and very much grasping the challenges of our time.
