CLIMATE ACTION

Climate change is a multifaceted global threat that puts at risk years of effort in poverty alleviation. Recognizing that poverty alleviation and environmental sustainability go hand in hand, we have launched our Climate Action Initiative that aims to harness the immense knowledge and on-ground learning we have gained over years of working with rural communities across the globe.

Advocacy for Change in Switzerland

Biogas Plant

We effectively manage food waste generated by the hotels in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu through the 100 cu.m biogas plant which further converts the waste into methane, and eventually used for power generation.

Waste Management

Because the weakest groups in society are directly dependent on their environment for food, they are usually most affected by the damaged local environment. While the amount of domestic waste from the population is increasing, the composition of household waste has become very diverse in recent years. Today, only 40% of generated household waste is biodegradable, while 60% are non-biodegradable. In addition, most households do not recycle their waste and tend to dispose of all the materials together.

To ensure a clean and healthy society, hand in hand India implements the waste management project. The project represents a model of multi-stakeholder cooperation in which NGOs, local governments and communities work together to bring about ecologically and economically sustainable waste management. The project aims for maximum waste recycling through composting, recycling and reuse and aims to minimize waste in landfills. Through this process, it also offers a permanent employment of people from socially and economically disadvantaged groups. The project also ensures that these practices are implemented in a sustainable way with the participation of the community. The long-term goal is thus to reduce the environmental impact.

Pioneer in Recycling Waste

A clean Karaikal (a town in the Indian Union Territory of Puducherry) has been initiated through the Municipal Solid Waste Management interventions of Hand in Hand India. The community is encouraged to use the two-coloured waste bins that help segregate biodegradable waste. The Green Friends engage in brisk sweeping drives on night shifts to ensure that the busy arterial roads remain clean during the day.

Through advocacy on the importance of waste management and Open Defecation Free neighbourhoods, we strive for maximum waste recovery through composting, recycling, and reuse. We reduce the waste being disposed into landfill. The source segregation of waste in the region has significantly improved from 0% to 35%.
