What is Green Works?

The effects of the changing climate are felt around the world, posing an increasing threat to the prosperity of people, economies and ecosystems. Climate change severely and disproportionately affects the poor in developing countries – not only because they are invariably more exposed and more vulnerable to climate-related impacts but also because they have less access to resources, and social and financial sup- port, including social protection, for their survival. EIIP assists and guides the identification, design and implementation of interventions in support of climate change adaptation and mitigation. Climate change adaptation involves reducing risks and vulnerability, while seeking opportunities and building the capacity of affected communities and people to cope with the effects. 

  • Green Works refer to the employment intensive development, restoration and maintenance of public infrastructure, community assets, natural areas and landscapes to contribute to environmental goals such as adaptation to climate change and natural disasters, environmental rehabilitation, ecosystem restoration and nature conservation.
  • Common examples of green works are soil and water conservation, afforestation and reforestation, irrigation, and flood protection.
