Case Studies

A people-centred approach to climate action is a key tenet of climate justice.  The Foundation seeks to present climate actions that have been informed by the people that use and benefit from them to show that participative approaches to policy design and implementation ultimately results in better climate action.

Many of the case studies presented here were commissioned as part of a joint initiative of the Foundation with the Irish Government and IIED which sought to understand the links between hunger, nutrition and climate justice. The Foundation is grateful to all the people who give their time and expertise to help us curate these climate justice stories which span development themes such as gender equality, food security and adaptation.

You can browse the Case Studies presented here or filter them thematically via the Resources section.
