GCCF Headquarters Bangladesh
Bangladesh has invested more than $10 billion in climate change actions – enhancing the capacity of communities to increase their resilience, increasing the capacity of government agencies to respond to emergencies, strengthening river embankments and coastal polders (low-lying tracts of lands vulnerable to flooding.
Bangladesh’s vulnerability to climate change impacts is due to a combination of geographical factors, such as its flat, low-lying, and delta-exposed topography, and socio-economic factors, including its high population density, levels of poverty, and dependence on agriculture.

GCCF Nigeria Sector Head Mr. Nonso okaka David
Nigeria’s climate has been changing, evident in: increases in temperature; variable rainfall; rise in sea level and flooding; drought and desertification; land degradation; more frequent extreme weather events; affected fresh water resources and loss of biodiversity. The durations and intensities of rainfall have increased, producing large runoffs and flooding in many places in Nigeria.
Rainfall variation is projected to continue to increase. Precipitation in southern areas is expected to rise and rising sea levels are expected to exacerbate flooding and submersion of coastal lands. Droughts have also become a constant in Nigeria, and are expected to continue in Northern Nigeria, arising from a decline in precipitation and rise in temperature. Lake Chad and other lakes in the country are drying up and at risk of disappearing.
Temperature has risen significantly since the 1980s. Climate projections for the coming decades reveal a significant increase in temperature over all the ecological zones. This rapid review synthesises evidence on the impact of climate change in Nigeria (geographic, sectoral, demographic and security impacts) and responses to address it (i.e. climate change mitigation and adaptation, adaptive capacity and capacity development).
There are a few comprehensive reports and papers that provide useful evidence and discussion of the various impacts of climate change throughout Nigeria. The vast majority of the literature that provides evidence of climate change impacts and responses, however, focuses on the agricultural sector and on individual farming communities in particular regions of the country. Discussion of other mitigation and adaptation measures in the literature often takes the form of recommendations, rather than examples of what has already been achieved.
This is likely due to the need for much greater implementation of mitigation and adaption measures in Nigeria. In addition, while there is some discussion about necessary capacity building at the individual, group and community level to engage in climate change responses, there is much less attention given to higher levels of capacity at the state and national level.
GCCF Afghanistan sector campaigner Mr. Parwiz shah safi .
An Afghan lifestyle causes 0.2 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions per year, compared with 15 from the average American, World Bank figures show. As predicted, one of the devastating effects has been a drop in rainfall in northern Afghanistan.
Since 1950, temperatures in Afghanistan have risen by 1.8°C. This leads and will lead to massive droughts. Due to these increased droughts related to a warming of all regions of the country by 2.0°C to 6.2°C by 2090 depending on scenario, Afghanistan will be confronted with desertification and land degradation.
Millions of people across the globe took part in protests on Friday demanding urgent action on the climate crisis. The strike kicks off a week of environmental activism with GCCF Community .

Tree Plantation is one of the best activities for making the planet greener, livelier, and healthier. Planted trees help our biodiversity, ensure the supply of oxygen for the next generations, and provide us with various resources. Without trees, the existence of human life, as well as other species on earth, is impossible. So, we should plant more and more trees.
GCCF Philippine sector Head Mr. Arnel Perez . Organize campaign from different state and region .
The report entitled Getting a Grip on Climate Change in the Philippines looks at the innovations as well as gaps in policy and financing of climate change programs since the country adopted the Climate Change Act four years ago.
The report – done at the request of, and in close collaboration with the Climate Change Commission (CCC) and the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) – provides detailed analysis and recommendations on how the country could accelerate reforms for managing the growing climate change impacts and increasing greenhouse gas emissions while contributing to poverty reduction.
The report provides recommendations along three themes:
• Strengthening the planning, execution, and financing framework for climate change;
• Enhancing leadership and accountability through monitoring, evaluation, and review of climate change policies and activities; and
• Building the country’s capacity and managing change
Climate change mitigation is a matter of great urgency. Pursuant to the national Climate Act, the
Netherlands needs to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 95% by 2050 compared to 1990.
This will be a daunting task for the next 30 years. However, the Netherlands is not starting from
scratch. In many areas, the transition is already under way and will pick up pace considerably over
the coming years. Furthermore, developments in the Netherlands and worldwide have shown that
sustainability improvements and economic growth can go hand in hand. This is cause for hope.
Nevertheless, the Netherlands will continue to face many challenges during the transition. To
ensure that the country will prepare itself, now is a good time to consider the long-term
implications of the transition. This long-term strategy has been written with this objective in mind.
The preparation of a national long-term strategy follows a European agreement laid down in the
Governance Regulation (EU 2018/1999, Article 15). Each Member State is required to use this
national strategy to describe how it will contribute towards meeting the goals in the Paris
Agreement. The strategy must also state what the Member State will contribute towards the
European goals in the long term in order for the EU to achieve climate neutrality as soon as
possible and arrive at a highly energy-efficient energy system based largely on renewable energy
The Climate Act has turned the focus of the Netherlands’ climate policy emphatically on the long
term. The act specifies a final target for 2050 and an interim target for 2030. With regard to the
sector-specific targets under the national Climate Agreement, the government has not only taken
into account cost-efficiency between now and 2030, but also and expressly steps that need to be
taken beyond that date to achieve the 2050 target. For this reason, the first Climate Plan under the
Climate Act also contains policy initiatives to prepare for the long term.
At the two-year and five-year review stages specified in the Climate Act (progress report and
Climate Plan review/update, respectively), the government will focus particularly on policies that
are geared towards the 2050 perspective by means of exploratory studies.
The Climate Act, Climate Agreement and Climate Plan are not only key steps towards 2030, but
also form the starting point for trajectories to prepare for the long term and choices that will have
to be made in the coming years. As a society we do not have all the answers, nor do we possess all
the facts we need. However, there are numerous social ambitions and points of view about the
transition in the longer term that, when taken in combination, provide an overall impression of the
long-term targets. This long-term strategy elaborates these elements and outlines their
implications for the policy agenda. The objective of this long-term strategy is to serve as a basis for
further analysis, discussion and policymaking in the years ahead, both at the national and the
international (European and global) level. The Netherlands Scientific Council for Government Policy
(Wetenschappelijke Raad voor het Regeringsbeleid, WRR) could make a significant contribution
towards this as well. The government will therefore consult with the WRR to see how this can be
added to WRR’s agenda

GCCF Team Nepal has cleaned two tourist sites ; Daha Taal(Daha lake) and Chameti Gufa(Chameri caves).
The problems of today, such as drought, forest fires, and flooding, will only be magnified by climate change. In Nepal, changes in monsoon patterns will greatly exacerbate the situation of unacceptable presence of poverty and inequalities of opportunities in the country. While many Nepalese people are coping autonomously to current stresses, the state must design and implement effective strategies to adapt to climate change impact to achieve economic and social progress. Adapting to long and short term climate-related problems need creative engagement among government, market actors and the civic movement.
GCCF France sector coordinator lead by Mr. Alfred freeman .
France joined the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) in 2012 and since then has demonstrated continuous commitment to slashing short-lived climate pollutants alongside carbon emissions to flatten the curve of climate change and build a healthier planet.
“Today, we know that by fighting climate change we also improve air quality and the benefit is twofold. That is why we want to mobilize all the tools, all the stakeholders, to greatly reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and atmospheric pollutants together,” said Brune Poirson, the former Secretary of State to the Minister for an Ecological and Inclusive Transition in 2019. “The Climate and Clean Air Coalition is a great example of what we can do together. It allows us to create synergies between countries and between non-state actors to develop concrete solutions, locally or globally, and ultimately accelerate our transition to a low carbon and clean economy.”
