Protecting the environment

Climate change will affect the world’s poorest the most. Extreme weather and natural disasters – like drought and flooding – are likely to increase as the world gets warmer, and poor communities struggle the most to cope with these events. Our projects support communities to protect their environment for the future, and to adapt to the effects of climate change.

Environmental work is regularly undertaken in addition to other projects. For example, volunteers may organise community action days raising awareness of recycling and environmental protection, or help to manage natural resources by replanting trees.
