ADAPTING TO A CHANGING CLIMATE Building resiliency and securing futures.

The Need

Many of our partner communities in Africa are already living the impact of our changing climate. Increasingly, adapting to the challenges of climate change is becoming a defining priority as these challenges intersect with other areas of community health and wellbeing.

Africa is the continent the most vulnerable to climate change, despite accounting for under 4% of the world’s carbon dioxide emissions. Climate change acts as a threat multiplier to existing challenges, including food insecurity, water scarcity, waterborne diseases, governance challenges and conflicts across the continent. Hundreds of millions of people are being impacted

Through our Africa Climate Action Initiative, we are connecting with grassroots community movements and organizations across the continent to build networks and capacity for climate change mitigation and adaptation.

As we learn, we are sharing knowledge with all of our partner projects, working to identify risks and opportunities to build community resilience.
