ACT Alliance recognises that climate change is a threat to lives, livelihoods and to the whole of creation. Climate change exacerbates poverty and inequality and undermines the ability of communities, particularly in developing countries, to enjoy a full life with dignity. ACT members are witnessing and responding to the many incidences of floods, droughts, sea-level rise and other extreme weather events that are affecting communities and undermining peace and development initiative.
In response, ACT Alliance’s climate justice programme aims to protect communities in the wake of extreme weather events and long-term climate adaptation and mitigation while enhancing community resilience and addressing climate-induced economic and non-economic losses and damages at the national and international level.
ACT Alliance, through its advocacy, development and humanitarian programming, undertakes climate justice work within its national and regional forums and has committed in its Global Strategy (2019 – 2026) to strengthen the programmatic nexus between climate change, sustainable development and humanitarian response from a faith, human rights, and gender justice perspective.
