Climate resilient development

Building resilience to climate change requires low-carbon development and reducing vulnerabilities in a way that includes all segments of society. Cowater supports climate mitigation by increasing access to renewable energy for households and communities (micro-grids and rural electrification) and solar-pumped water supply. In Jordan and Burkina Faso, we are increasing skills and economic opportunities for women, youth and small and medium enterprises to grow the market for renewable energy. Our expertise in natural resources, water, energy and infrastructure is complemented by our approach to reducing climate change risks through policy and community engagement. We are currently a lead provider of climate change expertise to the Green Climate Fund under their Communities of Practice framework.
