CARE International (CI) is a global confederation of fourteen Members and 4 Affiliate Members working together to save lives, defeat poverty and achieve social justice. CARE works in more than 90 countries around the world, implementing long-term program to fight poverty, responding to humanitarian emergencies and advocating for policy change to improve the lives of the poorest people, with a particular focus on women and girls.

The CARE Climate Change and Resilience Platform (CCRP) is CARE’s global team for Climate Justice. The CCRP leads and coordinates the integration of climate change and resilience across CARE’s development and humanitarian work. It aims to support and strengthen the ability of CARE to increase resilience and to tackle the causes and consequences of climate change. The CCRP does this by building capacities and growing CARE’s impact, influence and income to better serve the needs of the vulnerable – particularly women and girls – as shocks and stresses from climate change are increasingly overwhelming and impeding progress towards CARE’s key objectives by harming poor and marginalized people. The CCRP is an endeavor of CARE International, endorsed and supported by key national directors, and is coordinated by CARE Netherlands.

CARE has developed and implemented a confederation-wide intranet and knowledge management system within SharePoint Online to support our work. This will transform the sharing of content across the organization, reducing duplication both in effort and costs, and providing a platform for improved knowledge management. CARE’s Climate Justice team requires a space in CARE Shares that houses all our important information regarding our climate justice work, approaches, policies so that we can successfully fulfil our mandate to support the CARE Confederation to deliver on CARE’s Climate Justice Strategy 2030.
