Let’s build a climate resilient future, in a world that works better for everyone

Climate change won’t wait

We’ve arrived at a fork in the road and we need to join together to act, now.

Bikram Rana, who leads our flood resilience programme in Nepal, explains: “I have seen damaged infrastructure, strained water resources, food insecurity and biodiversity loss. If we don’t act, the situation will be disastrous.”

We have a choice. We can choose an approach that creates long-lasting positive impacts, enabling people to thrive despite the changing climate.

Bikram says: “Giving local communities a voice in the decisions that affect them, and introducing solutions that protect, restore, and sustainably manage nature, can reduce future climate impacts, support adaptation, and benefit people and planet.”

This is our chance to build a world that works better for everyone.

Be part of our plan for a better future, now.

We need more locally-led solutions and, as the impact of climate change reaches even more people, so must we. That’s why we’re seeking to raise a £1 million kick-starter fund to get us off to a flying start in 2022.

Our plan is to work with climate-affected communities to:

  • Prepare for more extreme weather
  • Adapt to the changing climate reality
  • Reuse & Replenish our finite resources

Raising £1 million will set us up to achieve our ambitious targets of working to improve the lives of six million people directly by 2025, which will have a positive, knock-on effect for 20 million more.

We’re already making progress in the world’s toughest places

Sihle is a climate pioneer living in Zimbabwe. Droughts caused by climate change regularly killed Sihle’s crops, leaving her with little income. We worked with Sihle and her community so they could learn new farming skills and build solar powered irrigation systems to boost their profits and their incomes.

“I’m now able to grow my produce and sell it so I can get some income. I’ll also be able to send my children to school for education.”

Your gift today will enable more people like Sihle to build better, climate resilient futures, and pioneer solutions that benefit millions more.
