Climate Change

Climate change is now recognised as a major environmental threat facing the world. Climate change is the rise in average surface temperatures on earth which is otherwise called global warming. The causes of global warming are the increased Co2 and green house gas emissions into the atmosphere.

Rural communities are highly dependent on natural resources for their livelihood and social structures. Samuha has been making efforts to support the vulnerable rural communities in understanding, coping, and adapting to Climate Change.

Climate Neutral Village is a strategic intervention where Samuha supports a cluster of communities with an integrated rural development package that addresses poverty as well as climate adaptation: community organisation, micro credit, sustainable agriculture, governance and Natural Resources Management.
