This year’s drought, hurricanes and other extreme climate and weather events have been devastating, and many experts predict that they will become the new normal as a result of climate change.
Unfortunately, foundations and other donors have not stepped up to support communities working to alleviate the impacts of climate change. This is particularly important in the South, which has emerged as ground zero for the effects of climate change.
Our newest As the South Grows report, “As the South Grows: Weathering the Storm,” includes three Do’s and three Don’ts to help foundations and wealthy donors invest in climate resilience effectively and sustainably.
In many ways, Southerners have been among the first to learn what it’s like to live with a new climate – the more hostile one we have created for ourselves over decades of living outside our planetary means. @ncrp #equity #ATL https://t.co/Ovm2AUmUNL

We hope “As the South Grows” inspires you to look at the South as an important opportunity for deeper engagement, investment and partnerships.
