Climate Action

Latin America is home to some of the world’s greatest biodiversity. However, poor environmental protection, exploitation of natural resources and a lack of awareness have contributed to the region’s growing environmental crisis. Further, climate change and inadequate waste management cause an increase in the spread of diseases such as cholera and dengue fever, which jeopardize the health of millions of individuals, and children in particular. Our partner organizations implement innovative programs in the following areas:

• Environmental education
• Sustainable fishing
• Sustainable cocoa and coffee farming
• Eco-friendly income-generation activities
• Reforestation
• Tree and plant nurseries
• Disease prevention campaigns
