Promoting climate protection

Climate change is the greatest challenge of our time. It is already triggering serious humanitarian crises. The number of climate-related disasters is increasing rapidly and threatening the existence of millions of people. Help combines climate protection with development cooperation to help people and the environment at the same time.

The devastating effects of climate change

Burning forests, parched soils, extreme flooding – the consequences of the climate crisis are already being felt around the world. To limit the extent of the destruction, in 2015 all world leaders committed to limiting global warming to well below 2°C and restructuring the global economy in a climate-friendly way. Despite this, CO2 emissions continue to rise.

The fact that we need to act now to save the future of the planet becomes clear every year. Natural disasters such as the floods in Germany in 2021 or the extreme flooding in Pakistan in 2022 are increasing rapidly.

Developing countries are particularly hard hit: persistent droughts are causing more and more hunger crises and catastrophic floods threaten the livelihoods of millions of people during the rainy seasons. Survival under these conditions is becoming increasingly difficult. Experts therefore estimate that around 140 million people will have to leave their homes by 2050 due to the effects of climate change.

Climate change is a catastrophe that affects us all. We can only stop it together – and that requires global solutions.

Fresh water thanks to solar power

The Sahel zone in Africa is one of the driest regions in the world. Help therefore relies on solar power. We drill wells and equip them with solar-powered pumps. This provides people with fresh water all year round.

Sustainable agriculture in Syria

Syria's agriculture is suffering from the consequences of climate change. In 2021, the north-east was hit by the worst drought in 70 years. Help trains smallholder farmers in ecological and resource-saving cultivation and irrigation methods, distributes seeds and equipment and repairs water pipes.

What is Help doing to protect the climate?

Climate protection and development cooperation go hand in hand

With financial and technical support in the areas of

  • renewable energies,
  • water and resource management,
  • efficient rural development,
  • long-term disaster risk reduction,
  • recycling systems and waste separation,
  • and sustainable agriculture

development cooperation not only raises awareness of climate protection, but also empowers people to take an active role in preserving their environment.

Our projects therefore promote climate-friendly strategies and technologies to help people and nature at the same time. From solar-powered drinking water wells to sustainable agriculture and recycling measures - the interlinking of climate protection and development cooperation always plays an important role.

In our projects, we involve the local population in all processes and support them in adapting to changing climate conditions and using their resources efficiently.
