Right now, climate change is hitting the poorest people on the planet the hardest. Every day poverty is made worse by the devastating effects of extreme weather. So every day, together with local partners, we support people around the world to prepare, adapt and respond.
What we're doing
We are responding fast to communities hit by the climate crisis
Extreme weather is destroying homes and wrecking lives. When disaster strikes, Oxfam, partners and volunteers get there fast, working to save lives and help people stay safe for the future.
We are helping people adapt to climate change, today and tomorrow
Innovations like drought-resistant seeds, reinforced homes, and training on how to grow new crops mean the people most at risk from the effects of climate change can carry on living, earning and learning, whatever the future brings.
We are holding the most powerful to account
Governments and companies have promised to tackle the climate crisis and protect the people it hits hardest. We help make sure the people facing the climate crisis get the support they need, and the people in power are held to account.
