TGT trustees and staff met for a full day’s strategy meeting in London yesterday. It was great to have Mary Peart, our newest trustee, with us for the first time. We covered a lot of ground:

  • Our project work in Nepal from Nawalparasi to Kavrepalanchok and Solukhumbu;

  • How to expand our Higher Education programme to enable more students to experience and study climate change adaptation in the field;

  • What we can do in Nepal, the UK and internationally to advocate for more and better Adaptation as a vital component of any response to the climate and ecological emergency.

Please keep an eye on our website and social media in the coming weeks as we develop and publish our plans.

This is such a critical moment in the history of Nepal and the world. We have to ensure that we mitigate and adapt to the impacts of climate change before things spiral out of all control. This is what we’re determined to do and the news of Cyclone Fani raging in India and Bangladesh is yet another reminder of the urgency and importance of our work.
