Climate Crowd is a crowdsourcing initiative that convenes and supports a network of partners to gather data on how climate change is impacting people and nature, and supports on-the-ground projects that help rural communities adapt while reducing pressure on biodiversity.

2019 Year in Review

300+ reports submitted

  11 countries

 7 new partners                      

   5 on-the-ground projects
2019 was a great year for Climate Crowd. We started collaborations with new partners, including those helping us to collect data, analyze data, and implement on-the-ground projects. Our key informant interview protocol continues to gain uptake, and is being widely adopted throughout the WWF network and beyond. 

In 2019 Climate Crowd was featured in a number of articles and publications, including Yale Climate ConnectionsUVAToday, WWF magazine articles on fog catchers  and coffee, and a publication on Nature and the SDG's.

Most importantly however, communities remain central to our work. We worked with them to understand how they are being impacted by changes in weather and climate, and to develop and implement solutions that help them adapt. See some of our projects below.
Projects completed in 2019
Above: Students at a school in Mexico's Querétaro state received lessons on climate science and adaptation. The students had the opportunity to apply what they learned through hands-on projects including construction of hoop gardens. Learn more
Above: Students now have access to fresh produce in school meals following the completion of a rainwater harvesting tank and school garden at a primary school in Guatemala. Learn more
New projects underway in Kenya, Zimbabwe and Madagascar
Above: Meetings with communities in Kenya (top left), Zimbabwe (top right), and Madagascar (bottom) to present results of data collection and discuss project ideas. Project activities are just getting underway, and include seaweed farming as an alternative livelihood, improved water access through a variety of methods, and installation of weather stations. Stay tuned for project updates.
