About CARE France

Established in 1983, CARE France's work focuses on advocacy, responding to crises by providing emergency aid, and fighting the climate emergency by reducing the risks communities face from natural disasters. 

Advocacy campaigns run by CARE France focus largely on spreading public awareness about:

  • The structural causes of poverty 
  • Discrimination against women and girls and how they are uniquely affected by poverty and the climate emergency
  • The importance of governments to implement effective climate policies such as reducing greenhouse gas emissions to limit global warming to 1.5°C and financially supporting climate adaptation

Gender equality and women empowerment inform all of CARE France's programs and advocacy work.
