The climate is a key determinant of where people live and climate change is increasingly recognized to influence the factors that can lead to population movements, including migration and displacement.
According to the latest research from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), we have less than 11 years to make the transformation necessary to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. The level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere would have to be cut by 45% by 2030 to prevent global warming above 1.5°C – in other words, the threshold at which the worst impacts of climate change could be averted.
As sustainable development is not possible without considering the environment and climate change, Eminence is determined to bring about changes by adding environment and climate change also as a core thematic area of its activities. This thematic area is focused on Environment, Climate Change, Water & Sanitation, Disaster Management, Livelihood & Entrepreneurship, Governance, Democracy & Peace, Urban Development, Transportation & Housing, Citizen Environment Forum, and Citizen Sustainability Forum.
Eminence works to implement climate action that can provide exceptional opportunities to unlock massive economic and social benefits to help us achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Through the action, Eminence is trying to address the challenges of environmental sustainability that are necessary to protect the world that we call our home.
