Empowering people to take action on the climate crisis through Regreening, resilience and global action.
It doesn't matter who you are - when disaster strikes, everyone deserves safety and support. Australians know what disaster feels like - we've lived through it in the overwhelming tragedy of the 2020 Bushfire Crisis that has impacted millions at home. As we lived through our own floods, droughts and fires, Climate Change affected communities around the world have faced their own challenges and felt their own heartache. From flooding and landslides due to unpredictable rainfall in Timor Leste, to worsening cyclones, extended droughts and longer hungry seasons around the world, the impacts of Climate Change are diverse and devastating.
A safe climate and the ability to adapt to environmental change are essential for every child, community and country. We’re working directly with communities and families in South East Asia and the Pacific region to better prepare them for natural disasters violent because of climate change.
The climate crisis threatens all of us - from bushfires in the Amazon and rural Australia to rising sea levels in Tuvalu and Vanuatu. As a child-focused organisation, World Vision can see that it’s not possible to sustain child wellbeing without a healthy natural environment.
There’s no time to waste - we must restore natural ecosystems and reduce emissions to reverse climate change, while helping the most vulnerable communities we work with adapt to the new climate.
We know the youngest generations will feel the greatest impacts from climate change – they're calling for policymakers to work towards a safe climate. With the collective voice of World Vision’s thousands of supporters, you can make a difference and support this global effort.
Your voice can help us keep children and local communities resilient to climate shocks and protect hard-won development gains.

Becoming a champion for natural climate solutions and making Re-Greening the Globe a cornerstone of Australia’s direct response to climate change through our aid program.
Listening to children and local communities we work with and acting on their calls for a safe climate in Australia, the Pacific, and around the world.
We’ll keep you updated on our public campaigns to raise awareness of the policy change that is needed to help children like X picture below remain resilient in the face of climate change.
We can't always avoid disasters, but communities that prepare for them can mitigate their impact. By combining disaster resilience projects with climate change adaption, World Vision helps communities maintain their livelihoods amid changing conditions.
Climate Change makes us and our neighbours vulnerable to disasters. Vanuatu and Solomon Islands are among the world’s most disaster-prone countries, vulnerable to cyclones, earthquakes, landslides and other hazards. With low-lying islands and atolls, they are also at risk to climate change and rising sea levels.
By supporting communities in disaster preparedness, response and resilience, we're ensuring they're better equipped to survive disasters, reduce their vulnerability and adapt to a rapidly changing climate. Learn more about Disaster Risk Reduction.
Thriving ecosystems make a world of difference to farmers and the most vulnerable - the carbon they capture also make a difference to the world.
In tandem with local communities, we identify context-specific solutions to climate change with a focus on food security, clean energy, natural resources management and climate adaptation and mitigation. Our projects include direct interventions like reforestation, agro-forestry, climate-smart agriculture, clean energy and access to carbon markets.
We’re a world leader in promoting Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration in rural communities. Farmers who naturally regenerating trees on farmland and forest areas improve agricultural productivity and reduce the incidence of droughts, floods and landslides, leading to transformative economic and social benefits for communities.

As a child-focussed organisation, we know that children around the world are at greatest risk of injury, disability and death caused by the impacts of climate change. They are less equipped physically, mentally and emotionally to cope with life-threatening conditions. The greatest killers of children – malnutrition, diarrhoeal disease and malaria – will get worse because of climate change. Australian children are feeling the effects of climate change and disasters too.
Our youngest people deserve a say in the world they will live in. We work to empower children and young people to exercise their rights and speak their truth about the disasters affecting their lives and the changes they want to see.
