Climate change is having far-reaching impacts on people from all walks of life across India. However, the millions of families Habitat partners with are often among the most vulnerable to the effects of climate change, which include increasingly common and severe weather events such as cyclones, floods and droughts. These events can result in tragic outcomes for families, including damage to or complete loss of their homes, which may expose them to other threats, such as food insecurity, disease and displacement. We believe we have a responsibility to recognize that climate change has a disproportionate impact on the people we serve, and that to be accountable to them, we must address that impact through resilient housing.
In this season of giving, we are launching our Green Habitats campaign to raise awareness climate change, take urgent climate action to preserve a livable climate and utilize renewable energy sources for the families we serve on ground.
We invite you to become a Green Champion and empower individuals to take urgent climate action - the need of the hour!
Habitat India aims to invest in projects that take positive climate action and address positive change. Together we can build homes with environment friendly building material, provide solar energy to families living in poor housing conditions, low-income or Government schools and marginalised communities.
But we can’t do this alone. Climate action is a task for all of us. It concerns all of us. That’s why we need you. Let’s join hands to protect our planet.
