30 Ways in 30 Days

30 Ways in 30 Days

What do solar loans, sustainable tourism, tea plantations, forests in Panama and African financiers have in common?

The answer is quite simple: all are part of the global solution to climate change, and part of the United Nation’s Environment Programme’s “30 ways in 30 Days” initiative, launched this week.

A month out from the start of the UN Climate Conventions meeting in Cancun, Mexico, the United Nation’s Environment Programme (UNEP) will release online one case study a day to show that solutions to climate change are available and can be copied and scaled up around the world. The examples are just the tip of the iceberg and highlights in terms of existing successful climate initiatives and programmes.

UNEP’s aim is to show that across the world, in myriad ways, from community-based programmes to entrepreneurial endeavours, solutions are available to help confront the challenges of climate change and to help countries, communities and businesses move towards low-emission climate-resilient growth.

We need your support to help spread the word that solutions to combat climate change are available and accessible.
