A DIFFERENT APPROACH to IMPROVING our WORLD.
Sustainable growth and climate change are two sides of the same coin. Climate change threatens to undermine decades of economic and social gains, and puts people at risk. That’s why we’re dedicated to thwarting the destructive pace of climate change, building climate-resilient communities, and promoting development projects that avoid irreversible environmental damage.
We work to achieve real improvements in people’s lives and in the choices and opportunities open to them. We do it by supporting national processes to accelerate the progress of sustainable human development.
What does that mean? It means real impact and far-reaching results.
In 2015, we created 1.35 million jobs in low-income countries — 42% for women — and helped to boost earnings and strengthen livelihoods for millions of others. We registered 68 million new voters across 37 countries and helped 2 million people access legal aid services. And we helped put in place more than a thousand new disaster reduction and adaption plans in 51 countries.Join us
