About IC

Inte­grate Cli­mate is a reg­is­tered char­ity based in Berlin, Ger­many. It was founded in 2013 by inter­na­tional devel­op­ment pro­fes­sion­als work­ing in the fields of com­mu­nity devel­op­ment, human rights advo­cacy, dis­as­ter risk reduc­tion and human­i­tar­ian emergencies.

At Inte­grate Cli­mate, we believe that cli­mate change poses one of the great­est threats to human devel­op­ment on the planet.

Predicted temperature increases under two scenarios: The current lack of effective climate change mitigation actions makes it highly unlikely that the low scenario can be achieved.

The cur­rent lack of effec­tive cli­mate change mit­i­ga­tion actions makes it highly unlikely that the low sce­nario can be achieved.

Ris­ing green­house gas emis­sions, defor­esta­tion, melt­ing ice sheets and dam­age to oceanic sys­tems caused by human activ­ity are chang­ing our cli­mate and warm­ing our planet at an unprece­dented rate.

If left unchecked, cli­mate change will con­tribute to mass extinc­tions of bio­log­i­cal life, destruc­tion of nat­ural eco-systems and widescale loss of human lives and liveli­hoods. Extreme storms, floods, droughts, ero­sion of coastal habi­tat and agri­cul­tural land, food inse­cu­rity, water scarcity, and the spread of trop­i­cal dis­eases are just some of the impacts that will be felt around the world.

Soci­eties and com­mu­ni­ties already vul­ner­a­ble to cli­mate haz­ards, and who lack the capac­ity and resources to cope with the impacts of cli­mate change are most at risk.

With­out sub­stan­tial mea­sures for cli­mate mit­i­ga­tion and adap­ta­tion, such pop­u­la­tions stand to suf­fer high social and eco­nomic costs.
