The problem

Vulnerable communities across the globe are already experiencing some of the worst impacts of climate change. However, we lack the ideas and resources to help them adapt to these changes, and their coping strategies often have detrimental impacts on biodiversity

 

 

What is Climate Crowd?

Climate Crowd is a crowdsourcing initiative that convenes and supports a network of partners to gather data on how climate change is impacting people and nature, and supports on-the-ground projects that help rural communities adapt while reducing pressure on biodiversity

How does it work?
 
WWF provides training and guidance to partners on how to collect data and develop  project ideas

 

Climate Crowd partners collect data from rural communities and submit reports to the crowdsourcing platform

 

We approve and post reports to the website. We also analyze the data and compile regular 2-page country summary reports that highlight key trends in the data
 
 
We work with partners to design, fund, and implement on-the-ground projects that address climate vulnerabilities revealed during the data collection process
 
 
 
 
 
This work is in part funded by a generous grant from the Alcoa Foundation

 

Data collection is also made possible, in part, by USAID through its support of the Africa Biodiversity Collaborative Group a coalition of seven US-based international conservation NGOs with extensive field programs in Africa
