Mercy Corps is helping vulnerable communities cope with the rising incidence of climate-related disasters such flooding and drought, leveraging the global focus on climate change adaptation. We must pro-actively consider climate change problems in the long-term and find sustainable solutions that will help vulnerable populations adapt to unavoidable impact while advocating for global changes needed to slow climate change’s pace.
