We promote eco-friendly farming techniques that are tailored to local environments and designed to improve food security and nutrition, helping communities sustainably manage water and other natural resources.
- 21.5 million people around the world displaced since 2010 due to climate disasters.
- 29.6 million acres of arable land are lost to drought and land degradation each year.
- 52 percent of the world’s people expected to live in water-stressed regions by 2050.
- 80 percent of people living with hunger are in areas prone to extreme weather.
The UN estimates that 70% of disasters are now climate related. By 2030, climate change could force more than 100 million people into extreme poverty. By that same year, half the world’s population is expected to live in a water-stressed area.
Those who bear the least responsibility for climate change suffer its effects the most. These effects include food and water scarcity, lost livelihoods, lower education levels, and gender-based violence. In short, climate change perpetuates poverty.
