Our Global Climate Work
To consolidate the considerable good practice knowledge coming out of our project work, and to further increase impact and reach, CARE has developed several global learning, research, and advocacy programmes.

Nowhere on the planet are people more vulnerable to the impacts of climate change than in sub-Saharan Africa. The continent is already prone to erratic rainfall, droughts, floods and cyclones, and climate change will only exacerbate these ongoing challenges.
Climate change is increasingly affecting everything that CARE does and poses a significant threat to our vision of a world of hope, tolerance and social justice where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security. That is why CARE must do all it can to ensure that all its actions are part of an urgent, effective and equitable response to climate change.
In heavily populated coastal areas of Thailand and Indonesia, high levels of erosion due to environmental degradation are being exacerbated by climate change impacts, such as rising sea levels and increased storm surge.
CARE Australia’s research on 11 projects in the Asia-Pacific region highlight the issues and challenges in working to strengthen the resilience of communities to disasters and the impacts of climate change. This research provides important insights to why working for gender equality and women’s voice is critical in resilience efforts.
The world’s poorest and most vulnerable, who are least responsible for causing climate change, continue to bear the brunt of its impacts. This is an extreme global injustice. The UN climate talks in Paris (COP21), 30 November - 11 December, are an opportunity to catalyse action. Governments must demonstrate that they are willing to take serious action on climate change. CARE is at COP21.
The world’s poorest and most vulnerable, who are least responsible for causing climate change, continue to bear the brunt of its impacts. This is an extreme global injustice. The UN climate talks in Marrakech (COP22), 7 November - 18 November, are an opportunity to catalyse action. Governments must demonstrate that they are willing to follow through on their commitments in the Paris Agreement. CARE is at COP21.
CARE promotes Community-Based Adaptation to climate change, in particular, because we believe it to be a highly effective approach.
