Urgent need for climate action in Developing Nations

The warming climatic system is expected to significantly impact the availability of essential resources such as freshwater, food security, and energy to local communities worldwide. The link between climate change and sustainable development is strong – with the Global South, particularly least developed countries, expected to be the most adversely affected and least able to cope with the anticipated shocks to their social, economic and natural systems. 

Climate LinkUP’s Adaptation and Mitigation Program (AMP) [Non-profit Foundation] supports bold acceleration of science-informed climate action with communities, via an integrated and targeted ‘Climate with Nature’ mitigation and adaptation action approach. AMP focus is on accelerated roll out and scale up of green renewable energy via our PowerUP initiative and delivery of science-informed Nature-based Solutions (NbS) to protect/enhance natural ecosystems and biodiversity. Our global Scientific and Technical Expert Panel (STEP)  supports and informs the Adaptation and Mitigation Program, AMP.

INTRODUCING THE GLOBAL AMP HUBS

AMP delivers an integrated ‘climate with nature’ action approach

Since the global Climate and Nature crises are fundamentally interconnected with common shared human drivers, an integrated and coupled approach to solutions is required. Neither will be successfully resolved unless both are tackled together. ​

"Transformative change in all parts of society is needed to stabilise our climate, stop biodiversity loss and chart a path to the sustainable future we want. This will also require us to address both crises together, in complementary ways"

- Ana María Hernández Salgar, Chair of IPBES


Delivering Renewable Energy Solutions

Equitable food systems, healthcare and education. Access to energy within local communities is essential to overcome poverty, promote economic growth and provide employment opportunities and basic social services.


Building Ecosystem Resilience

Protecting and restoring natural ecosystems and biodiversity is at the heart of Climate LinkUP's Adaptation & Mitigation Program. There is increasing global recognition that when managed sustainably, natural ecosystems are society’s most important defence against the harmful impacts of climate change. 

Delivering renewable energy solutions:

equitable food systems, healthcare and education

Energy access for local communities is essential to overcome poverty, promote economic growth and provide employment opportunities and basic social services. 10% of the world population live in extreme poverty today, struggling to fulfil the most basic needs including energy. Access to energy within local communities is essential to overcome poverty, promote economic growth and provide employment opportunities and basic social services.

Food Systems
PowerUP Food Systems

Renewable energy powering sustainable and equitable Food Systems. As urban populations grow, food storage, transportation and distribution requirements from rural regions have increased significantly in demand and scale. Zero Hunger relies on both sustainable agricultural and cold distribution chains.

PowerUP Healthcare

Renewable energy powering Healthcare. For the billion people who depend on health facilities in remote and rural areas lacking electricity, renewable energy can transform health services in communities- powering lighting and medical equipment, supporting storage of critical refrigerated vaccines and delivering improved health and wellbeing.

Education
PowerUP Education

Renewable energy powering Education. Powering rural schools with renewable energy can transform children’s’ education – by facilitating inclusive and equitable quality education opportunities, significantly improving local community skills and supporting economic growth.

The Climate LinkUP Hub is open and free

Building ecosystem resilience:

restoring and enhancing ecosystems and biodiversity

Protecting and restoring ecosystems and biodiversity is at the heart of the Climate LinkUP Adaptation and Mitigation Program (AMP). There is increasing global recognition that when managed sustainably, natural ecosystems that deliver essential ecosystem services for communities, are society’s most important defence against the harmful impacts of climate change and anthropogenic pressures – by providing long-term ecosystem resilience and adaptation capacity.

Clean water and sanitation 

Clean water and sanitation are at the core of sustainable development. Today, 2.2 billion people lack access to safely managed drinking water, and more than 4.2 billion people lack safely managed sanitation. Climate change, with increasing disasters such as floods and droughts, and pollution have led to severe water stress in developing nations.    

biodiversity
Sustainable oceans

Oceans and coastal areas cover more than two-thirds of the earth’s surface and contain 97% of the planet’s water. Oceans contribute to poverty eradication by creating sustainable work, are crucial for global food security, human health, the primary regulator of the global climate, an important sink for greenhouse gases and host huge reservoirs of biodiversity.  

forestry
Biodiversity protection

Environmental pressures are causing global biodiversity declines at rates not previously encountered in history and rates of species extinctions are accelerating globally. Significant and bold changes in the way the natural environment is managed is required to halt the biodiversity loss and build ecosystem resilience, protecting nature’s benefits to communities.

The current international climate emergency requires urgent action to restore nature and it’s vital contributions to society. Bold acceleration of climate action is imperative as a foundation for a sustainable and resilient green recovery.
