Description

Action Pledge 4

Non-governmental organisations are important actors in development cooperation. This is increasingly not only being recognised by government development agencies of industrialised countries but also by governments in countries of the South. The existing method for climate proofing primarily serves to provide an instrument for employees of Welthungerhilfe and their local partners, to define promising strategies for adaptation to climate change during the planning of regional and country programmes, and to identify effective options for action during the planning of individual projects. Welthungerhilfe has commissioned the German Committee for Disaster Reduction (DKKV) with the task of developing a climate proofing method.
