Climate change is one of the most disruptive challenges the world is facing. The negative impacts are accelerating and becoming more visible every day. As underlined by the successive reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, there is a real climate urgency. Action has to be taken now to limit global warming to a manageable level.
20 years of experience
Enabel has twenty years of experience integrating environmental issues into its actions and ten years of experience providing solutions to deal with the effects of climate change. Leading and inspiring by example, the agency aims to have its offices in Belgium and abroad as well as its development projects become carbon neutral. Since July 2019, Enabel is accredited by the Green Climate Fund making the agency qualified to implement environmental projects financed by the Fund.
Climate-resilient and smart agriculture
Due to climate change, agricultural productivity is declining. Enabel supports the transformation of the agricultural sector in order to feed a growing global population in a sustainable and healthy way, providing the basis for economic growth and reducing inequalities
Integrated and sustainable water management
Sound water governance rules and Integrated Water Resource Management are key to preserving both drinking water and productive water, in a context of water scarcity. Enabel contributes to more people having access to safe drinking water and to more land benefitting from Integrated Water Resource Management.
Green urban growth
Enabel’s work is aimed at bringing more (secondary) cities and human settlements to adopt and implement integrated policies and plans for inclusion, resource efficiency, smart cities, circular economy and urban resilience, and to promote skills and jobs for the green and circular economy. That should reduce the risk of flooding, landslides and the existence of heat islands, amongst other issues.
More on climate change
The world is facing huge challenges in realising the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. Enabel wants to contribute with its experience and expertise in five specific domains: Peace and Security, Climate Change and the Environment, Social and Economic Inequality, Urbanisation, and Human Mobility. In our search for adapted solutions we take into account the inevitable ongoing population explosion and we strongly believe in empowering women and youths.
