The CARE-WWF Alliance is active throughout the network of both organizations — implementing, partnering, convening and sharing in areas of the world that are impacted by climate change, where one or both institutions have an active presence or have established local partners.

Climate change is a universal problem, yet impacts are diverse and optimal local solutions are unique to each community and region. While always grounded in the mission to work through and support the power and resilience of local women and their communities, the Alliance is flexible in its approach based on local circumstances and existing programming.

The CARE-WWF Alliance program priority is Sowing Change, a livelihood to leadership a livelihood-to-leadership initiative that provides access to resources and skills for young women to generate income through nature-based enterprises and lead their communities to identify local solutions to climate-induced challenges.

Sowing Change is based on the success and learnings of four distinct programs that illustrate the Alliance’s diverse approach:
