Despite being one of the smallest contributors to greenhouse gases, Afghanistan is one of the countries that is most aggressively experiencing its effects, making finding food a major challenge and putting lives at risk. By providing them with support, training and tools, you can help Afghans who are vulnerable to climate change and climate-induced disasters get #ReadyForChange

The situation

As a result of reduced rainfall and higher temperatures Afghanistan faces increasingly severe challenges, from the degradation of land to growing water shortages. Over half the population relies on agriculture and families are finding it increasingly difficult to survive. Climate change is also increasing the frequency and severity of natural disasters such as droughts, floods and landslides, threatening lives and livelihoods on a yearly basis and forcing people to flee their homes.

Our solution

We support rural communities which are highly vulnerable to climate change and climate-induced disasters to prepare, reduce the risks, and adapt to the changing conditions. Through providing training in managing sustainable ecosystems and assisting communities to develop and implement watershed and land use plans, we support communities to implement physical and ecological measures that help prevent floods and drought, grow more food, diversify agricultural livelihoods and save lives.

Who we help

With our support, Bibi's village is transforming itself with trees and a water storage system to change their fortunes in the face of a changing climate. 

We also supported the construction of a flood protection wall in Shallok village, offering the village a new beginning following heavy flash floods which washed away homes, livestock and belongings, forcing most families to escape and set up a new life elsewhere
