Our impact on Climate & Energy

What is the issue?

Climate change poses a fundamental threat to the places, species and people’s livelihoods. To adequately address this crisis we must urgently reduce carbon pollution and prepare for the consequences of global warming, which we are already experiencing. 

What are we doing?

Working with the Zambian government and other partners, we; help people and nature adapt to a changing climate, advance policies to fight climate change, combat deforestation and engage with businesses to reduce carbon emissions.


 

What are the big wins?

Tackling climate change involves every single one of us – and WWF is at the heart of the global movement for a low-carbon, climate-resilient future. We remain calm and positive but also realistic about the huge global effort required to meet the challenge. Here is what we have achieved in Zambia thus far;
 
  1. WWF has contributed to the development of the national climate change policy and adaptation plan.
  2. We are working with finance institutions to get money out of fossil fuels and into climate solutions, like clean technology and forest restoration. 
  3. We are supporting businesses to cut their carbon emissions.
  4. We are working to reduce the impact of climate change in areas like agriculture, forests and water.
  5. We are helping people from the Silowana Complex to adapt to the changes ahead through training them on climate change adaptation, water harvesting and climate smart agriculture.
