Solutions to climate change
World Vision works directly with communities to identify context-specific solutions with a focus on food security, clean energy, natural resources management and climate adaptation and mitigation.
Our projects include interventions like reforestation, agro-forestry, climate-smart agriculture, clean energy and access to carbon markets.
World Vision Australia is world leader in promoting Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration in rural communities, by naturally regenerating trees on farmland and forest areas to improve agricultural productivity and reduce the incidence of droughts, floods and landslides.
We’ve also helped a number of communities in Ethiopia by providing a cleaner, safer way to cook their food. The Clean Stoves Project reduces the health risks associated with smoky open fire stoves, and it reduces the need to cut down trees. Both clean stoves and reforestation projects can generate additional income for the communities through the sale of carbon markets.
Finally, we’ve worked with communities in South East Asia and the Pacific region to better prepare them for tropical storms and other natural disasters, which are becoming increasingly frequent and violent as a result of climate change.
By supporting our work with communities around the world that are affected by the effects of climate change, you contribute to their ability to cope with external shocks and stresses while improving the natural environment in which they live.
