Globally, 3.3 billion people live in areas that are highly vulnerable to climate change, with heightened risk of drought, famine, and destructive storms. Through our partnerships:

People have increased resilience to climate change

Trees planted to protect land, water and food systems

People learned to adapt their methods of food production


No country or individual is immune to the impacts of climate change, but those living in developing countries in the Global South are especially vulnerable to the risks and burdens climate change presents. These risks include decreased food production, extreme weather patterns, drought, and loss of livelihoods.  Ironically, those living in these regions contribute the least to the problem. With urban populations rising rapidly in Africa and Asia, billions of people are at risk of being affected by the climate crisis. 



  • 3.3 billion people live in countries with high vulnerability to climate change.
  • By 2030, an estimated 700 million people will be at risk of displacement from drought.
  • 2.5 billion small-scale farmers, fishers, herders, and forest-dependent communities are vulnerable to natural hazards.
  • 200 to 600 million more people could suffer from hunger by 2080, depending on the climate change scenario.



One Day’s Wages comes alongside grassroots partners that support vulnerable communities to adapt their food production and livelihoods to a changing climate.  Since 2009, we have supported 8 climate impact projects in under-resourced communities, impacting over 3,000 people.  Through our partnerships, Maria can better provide food for her children, and Genaro learned to share about the environmental benefits of beekeeping with his neighbors.
