Global temperatures look like breaking through the 1.5 degree increase versus pre-industrial levels within the next decade. This is expected to result in extreme weather conditions leading to flood and famine and wide spread social disruption.
Sub-Saharan Africa has contributed barely 3% to global Green House Gases but stands to be amongst the worst effected regions of the planet.
Our goal is to help find ways to slow down the rise in global temperatures and to assist these most impacted by climate change to adapt, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa.
What we do
We unearth and fund highly scalable, science based, research initiatives that aim to address climate change mitigation and adaptation.
We lead the implantation of the strategies that we deem to be the most promising.
Our Research Initiatives
The Climate Trust has sponsored projects focussing on the following categories of research:
