    Organizational structure: We have two co-directors and several volunteer researchers and interns in several countries.

We foster coordinated research and action to promote climate solutions that are equitable and sustainable.
    Number and type of members: The International Oil Working Group brings together dozens of scholars and practitioners from some 14 countries. The Network is constantly expanding, driven in part by the expansion of concern to address climate change.
