Founded in 2002, the Jackson Hole Center for Global Affairs (JHCGA) is a leading bipartisan do tank in the Rocky Mountain region.  We leverage the beauty of Jackson Hole's "Power of Place" to find shared solutions to global problems.  We mobilize ideas and action outside of government to impact the policy process.  

JHCGA views climate change as the global crisis of our time.  From the beginning we have had a niche focus on scaling climate solutions from within global coal regions. We believe that the global tipping point in achieving climate action is through the positive transformation of coal regions.


In 2003, JHCGA launched our ongoing flagship project; the U.S. China Clean Energy Initiative to hasten climate solutions collaboration between Wyoming and Shanxi, China, the two largest coal-producing regions from the globe’s two largest economies and carbon emitting nations: the USA and China.  

We welcome opportunities for collaboration.
