Nicaragua is particularly vulnerable — being the fourth most at-risk nation in the world due to changing climates.

Amos Trust supports seven communities in Teustepe in Nicaragua through our partner CEPAD who work in isolated rural communities, addressing the impact of climate change and causes of extreme poverty.

CEPAD equip local communities with the skills, knowledge and resources they need to identify their own problems, break the cycle of poverty, claim their rights and become empowered agents of change.

Initiatives include education and training in farming techniques and encouraging and enabling individuals, especially women, to set up small, sustainable businesses to support their families. Climate change cannot be seen in isolation from all the other difficulties these small communities face, rather it amplifies them.

Nicaragua, as well as being severely affected by climate change, has always had a turbulent political history and CEPAD knows that for communities to have a better future, they must address the context of the local situation.
