Energy & Climate

Climate change is the biggest environmental issue of our time and is about to pose a serious and global threat to sustainable development, poverty elimination, peace and human rights in the coming decades. Climate change is inextricably linked with energy concerns as two thirds of global emissions come from energy consumption.
WECF implements interrelated policies in both issues.

WECF aims to provide safe, affordable and renewable energy for low income households, bringing successful pilot projects to scale via innovative financial instruments. WECF promotes a switch away from fossil fuels and nuclear energy towards sustainable and decentralised alternatives. WECF empowers vulnerable groups to benefit from climate change adaptation and mitigation programmes. WECF promotes gender-positive energy solutions and integrates a gender perspective into global UN climate change negotiations.
