A few words about
What We Do
To harness the transformative power of communities to restore nature, revitalize ecosystems and sustainably develop our world
Climate change is the most serious global challenge of our time, requiring a global response. Climate change is across- cutting development issue that not only requires political goodwill and support to effectively address the risks, but also citizen action to maximize the opportunities it presents. Adaptation to climate change is our top priority to reduce vulnerability and enhance resilience of the social and bio-physical systems, especially for the marginalized groups and vulnerable communities, as well as mitigation actions that deliver sustainable development outcomes where we work. Climate action through our work with communities will ensure that development opportunities are realized through people-centered growth, while encouraging green growth and resource efficiency for long-term sustainable development of the communities
CLIMATE SMART AGRICULTURE AND FOOD SECURITY
The agriculture sector is a major contributor to global economy in terms of food and nutrition security, employment creation, supply of agro-based industry raw materials and foreign exchange earnings. However, the sector is extremely vulnerable and highly susceptible to climate change and climate variability compromising the potential of the sector to attain both national, economic and global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Climate change is increasing production risks, with serious implications for agriculture, food security and livelihoods. Climate smart agriculture provides an approach and opportunity to make agricultural systems more productive, resilient, sustainable and competitive in generating incomes and improving livelihoods. On the other hand, the major factors leading to food and nutrition insecurity are: poverty which stops people from buying food to support their families, climate change that reduces production and food waste and losses that contribute to hunger. In the face of such serious challenges, we work with marginalized and vulnerable communities to transform and re-orientate their agricultural systems to sustainably; increase productivity, adapt and build resilience to the likely risks of climate change through ecosystem-based adaptation for food security.
Energy poverty is still rife in the communities where we work. Access to energy is fundamental to improving quality of life and is a key imperative for socio-economic development. In developing countries women and girls living the rural areas are significantly affected by energy poverty, as they are usually responsible for providing the primary energy for households. Energy access is important in climate change adaptation, for instance, decentralizing electricity by harnessing the abundant solar power to agro-industrialization, we get much higher return-an estimated $98 billion extra from just one crop value chain. This translates to not only social returns such as lighted houses, but economic and financial returns in form of enhanced incomes at the community as well as mitigation of carbon where clean energy is prioritized. Our work not only seeks to improve access and affordability of renewable energy technologies for lighting and clean cooking but also prioritize maximizing economic, financial, social and environmental returns to the end users.
WE FOREST ECO HIKE
The Organization will frequently organise trips to the National parks and research and many tourism sites to plant trees and learn more of what nature entail. Weforest Learning: Weforest will frequently go to Learning institutions to teach matters in relation to environment and empower environmental clubs
