Association GERES

Climate change

Intention

While the North now acknowledges its historic responsibility for climate change, people in the South are the first to suffer from the impact of changes that increase their vulnerability. As a result, rethinking development models is now essential and societies need to change their ways. In the field, GERES strives to combat both poverty and climate change by promoting resilient low-carbon development of the territories where it works.

Activities

In the South, GERES helps communities to cope with climate change through awareness-raising and information and enhancing local skills and technologies (artificial glaciers, agro-forestry, etc.). It also supports the development of local strategies for the territories concerned (e.g. vulnerability analysis, energy assessment and geomatic analysis).
