The climate emergency jeopardizes the benefits and progress already made in addressing the injustice of poverty and gender inequalities while increasing the demand to respond to urgent humanitarian needs. Hence, the climate emergency severely affects CARE’s efforts to overcome poverty and social injustice.
Our goal is that 25 million people, particularly women and girls, have strengthened their resilience and adaptive capacities to the effects of climate change.
CARE intends to tackle the inequalities that are at the heart of our current systems: systems that were designed to protect the privileges of particular groups but which can no longer be held. CARE aims for a Climate Just future, for all.
