CARE International recognises that climate change is a huge threat to achieving poverty reduction. The impacts of climate change are destroying livelihoods and increasing financial, political, social and environmental inequities.
As one of the first organisations to develop a community based approach to climate adaptation, CARE helps poor and marginalised communities adapt to their already changing weather patterns and to prepare for inevitable but sometimes unpredictable changes.
CARE International UK pays special attention to the consequences that climate shocks and stresses have on food and nutrition security, particularly amongst women. CARE International facilitates the Poverty, Environment and Climate Change network and undertakes national and international advocacy to secure greater climate justice for poor people.
