Climate Change Resilience

Climate Change Resilience

Climate change poses a growing threat to Africa’s people, wildlife, and ecosystems. Rising temperatures, longer and more intense droughts, and more extreme weather will impact healthy habitats, food security, water sources, and human health and safety. At African People & Wildlife, we believe we can mitigate these threats by taking collective, urgent action today. When we build the resilience of Africa’s communities, wild species, and the lands they call home, we create a healthier and safer future for all.
