AREAS OF WORK

Our work is focused in three interconnected areas: sustainable livelihoods, thriving nature and prepared communities. Synergistic interplay between these themes allows us to address social, economic, and environmental challenges systemically.

Creating synergies across sectors can boost income generation, natural resource management, and community resilience to climate change. Empowering communities in decision-making and resource management enhances social cohesion, reduces inequalities, and fosters adaptive governance.

Our investments contribute to making livelihoods more sustainable, helping people to earn a decent living while restoring and conserving nature. The programmes we fund support smallholder farmers, regenerative agriculture, ecosystem management and sustainable business practices.

We also support programmes that help prepare communities to face and recover from multiplying disasters.

Prepared
Communities

By building their resilience, local communities enhance their capacity to anticipate, withstand, and recover from the impacts of climate change and other hazards.

Thriving
Nature

Diverse ecosystems are crucial for human well-being, offering clean air, water, fertile soil, and flood regulation. Conservation and restoration of natural habitats through sustainable land and water management enhance both human and environmental resilience, promoting climate adaptation.

Sustainable
Livelihoods

We prioritise inclusive economic opportunities resilient to climate change. Our support includes sustainable agriculture, fisheries, renewable energy, and green entrepreneurship, aiming to reduce poverty, enhance food security, and build resilient livelihoods for vulnerable communities.
