Climate Change

Since the 19th century the earth’s climate system has been changing due to human industrial activities based on fossil fuels and energy-intensive lifestyles. Consequently slow onset changes and extreme weather events becoming more intense and frequent already impact all of us around the world, but endangering more the lives of the poorest and most vulnerable who have contributed the least to global warming. ACT Alliance EU fights this injustice and undertakes targeted lobby and advocacy work to eliminate the causes of climate change, to provide adequate support for building resilient societies and to promote sustainable solutions for a better development eradicating poverty in the long term.
