Environment and climate change

We Effect provides specialised technical assistance and environment and climate change adaptation is mainstreamed in all activities.

We Effect has long experience of working with environmental issues, especially in relation to rural development.

The support to partner organisations aims to enhance their capacity to influence policy formulation and advocacy and to promote and facilitate linkages/networks with specialised environmental and other organisations. We Effect also supports specific activities and working approaches, including the promotion of organic agriculture and agroecology, rain harvesting techniques and sustainable land management.

The new Global Strategy makes environmental sustainability mandatory in all development programmes. To further strengthen and emphasise the importance of environmental issues, a global capacity development project will be implemented during the upcoming programme period.

To emphasise the strategic relevance and necessity of these perspectives more strongly, We Effect will implement a global capacity development project during the coming 5-year programme period. The project will be directed to We Effect staff and partners in selected countries.
