Climate change is a huge threat to the people & places where EcoLogic works.
Climate change is already causing a cascade of negative effects on the environment, human society, and nature. Central America and southern Mexico are experiencing these impacts in particularly acute ways because of their proximity to the equator.
Many of the approaches that are part of EcoLogic’s toolkit of solutions are helping local people in Central America and Mexico to adapt to the effects of climate change (and in some cases, like with our CarbonPlus program, mitigate its impacts as well). Reforestation, building fuel-efficient stoves, environmental education, and payment for ecosystem services projects, for example, all help rural communities build resilience in the face of climate disruption.
