£600,000 is being awarded to Scottish-based organisations working with partners in Malawi and Zambia under the Scottish Government’s Climate Justice Innovation Fund, which empowers communities to respond to a changing environment.
Projects supported include training in ‘climate smart’ agricultural practices, testing the use of artesian water for sustainable farming and piloting the use of solar ovens and biogas as a fuel source.
Between 2012 and 2021, the Climate Justice Fund will make at least £21 million available to support projects in some of the world’s poorest countries. Climate justice is grounded in a human rights-based approach to tackling the effects of climate change and additional background information can be found on the Scottish Government website
