WHAT WE DO
Climate change is the defining issue of our age because it threatens our socio-economic lives, health and the future of our children. The landmark Paris Agreement commits all countries to hold global temperature rise to “well below 2 degrees Celsius”. This feat requires economy-wide global and national transformations. At ClimateAid we promote multi-sector response in pivoting societies toward a more sustainable future for all – the future we want.
At ClimateAid we subscribe to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, universal call to act to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. In the spirit of partnership we aspire to work with others to improve life, in a sustainable way , for future generations
Often called the lungs of the earth; forest help to clean our air, regulate the climate. Forest filters our water, provides vital raw materials, inspiration, recreation and act as cultural heritage. However indiscriminate felling and poor land use practices undermine forest abilities to save us. Our afforestation and urban forestry initiatives are designed to conserve our forests
Migrants are people like you and me who are sometimes forced to move for various reasons. States have the responsibility to protect and assist crisis affected persons. As non state actors, Climate Aid Initiative, an organisation with special accreditation status to the United Nation on Global Compact on Migration processes is committed to helping to reduce migration driven by climate change and environmental degradation.
Our Climate Change Advocacy Campaign aims to soften public apathy toward climate change, through strategic communication and social mobilization. The antidote to our environmental problems is a change in attitude. A better understanding of the risks and effects of climate change on socio-economic activities will motivate and facilitate both behavioural change and societal support for actions taken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Climate change is a direct threat in itself and a multiplier of many other threats -- from poverty to displacement to conflict. The effects of climate change are already being felt around the world. They are dangerous and they are accelerating., Everyone is accountable for the phenomenon of climate change. All of us will be responsible and each of us can do something to help..
