This programme aims to address the climate challenge by promoting inclusion, equity, and resilience in the face of a rapidly changing environment. We aim to address the gendered consequences of climate change and its drivers through a comprehensive approach that includes community empowerment, legal and policy reform, and technological innovation.

Climate change affects everyone, but vulnerable communities are hit the hardest. At GRA, we believe that these communities should be at the forefront of climate action. Our programme aims to empower extractive host communities with the knowledge, resources, and tools they need to adapt to and mitigate the impacts of climate change. We focus on building local capacity, supporting community-led initiatives, and amplifying the voices of marginalized groups to shape climate policies.

Through advocacy, collaboration and strategic partnerships, this programme seeks to influence an environment that prioritizes climate justice to address the disproportionate impacts of climate change on vulnerable communities. This involves advocating for stronger laws, policies, and regulations, promoting transparency, and holding stakeholders accountable for their environmental responsibilities.

It is crucial for communities to have access to the latest technologies that promote environmental and climate stewardship for building resilience and sustainability. Our programme aims to bridge the technological divide by ensuring the equitable dissemination of climate-smart technologies. This involves providing training and support to communities, fostering innovation, and making sure that the technological solutions are culturally sensitive and tailored to meet the specific needs of each community.
