Description

The Environmental Monitoring Group is working on Climate Change, Fair Trade, Rural Development and Water and Climate Change. EMG works to build responses to climate change in the water sector that are just, human-scale, ecologically sensitive, empowering and effective.EMG's work is primarily focussed on questions of climate change adaptation and includes working with community groups to explore their vulnerability to the potential impacts of climate change and ways of responding, working with other NGOs in the development field to explore both reducing the carbon-footprint of their activities, and how their work may be impacted by climate change, raising awareness of the links between natural resource management and climate change and lobbying and advocacy for policies which build more resilient communities and minimise global warming.
