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.

In the News...

New research on changes in the annual birth time of red deer in a warming Scotland suggests that evolution may be partially responsible. Phenological changes (i.e. changes in the timing of life cycle events) are often an indicator of a changing climate and can have adverse impacts on ecosystems. Few studies to date, however, have demonstrated genetic change in response to anthropogenic climate change. This article published by provides a summary of the findings. 

Recent Climate Crowd events

November has been a busy month for Climate Crowd. We've conducted trainings on data collection and project implementation for Peace Corps volunteers in Guatemala and for School for Field Studies researchers and students in Kenya and Tanzania. We also met with community members in Madagascar to present findings from data we collected from them and discuss adaptation projects we will implement in the coming months. 
Project Update
Work recently concluded on a Peace Corps led Climate Crowd project that employs rainwater harvesting technology and irrigation to collect water at a local school and distribute it to a newly established school garden. The school now has the capacity to store 12,000 liters of water and has already harvested 53 pounds of produce from the garden.
