Volunteer for a climate safe world
The Australian Volunteers Program is committed to supporting our partners as they work to reduce the impact of climate change in their communities
Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time
Communities and organisations around the world are working to reduce the impact of climate change and identify ways to adapt to new climatic conditions. Australian volunteers play an important role in helping to develop capacity and support communities to respond to climate change
Acknowledging the rapidly changing and increasingly complex global humanitarian environment, the Australian Volunteers Program has committed to increasing volunteer placements in climate change, disaster resilience and food security
The Australian Volunteers Program commissioned CoLab, a Fiji-based development consultancy, to develop a Pacific Climate Research report. The report includes a number of case studies on Australians volunteering in the Pacific, looking at how their support has helped to strengthen the capacity of communities to reduce the impact of climate change.
