We support work that helps individuals, communities, organizations and natural systems to deal with those consequences of climate change that cannot be avoided. It involves taking practical actions to manage risks from climate impacts, protect communities and strengthen the resilience of the local economy in Masvingo. Human activities contribute to climate change by causing changes in Earth’s atmosphere in the amounts of greenhouse gases, aerosols (small particles), and cloudiness.
What’s required to initiate the Process?
Ensuring that indigenous peoples and community rights issues are promoted and recognized in both climate change policy discussions and implementation activities and local , national and international levels .
