Response to COVID-19 Emergency

Carbon Minus India (CMI) invites your kind support to help Vulnerable Communities to cope
with Present Day Challenges,

(i) the COVID-19 Pandemic Crisis and
(ii) Vulnerability due to adverse impact of the Climate Change, or
(iii) Other Natural Disasters and Calamities,

which breaks their backbone, enabling large scale mass migration, resulting poverty, hunger and unsafe health conditions, particularly with urban as well as rural weak, poor and marginalized communities. Here at CMI, We are trying to support them, in response to this most difficult time.

Carbon Minus India (CMI), along with Indian Institute of Sustainable Development (IISD), works very closely with these communities who are key stakeholders in our Climate Change Adaptation and Nature Conservation work. Loss of livelihood due to COVID-19 has put these families under immense hardship and we are trying our best to provide them with basic minimum food supplies, hygiene and safety kits and safe livelihood guidance and handholding, at this point of hour.

These communities involve Lock-down mass migrating communities from urban slums to their villages of their origin, large scale Farmers from Agriculture, Horticulture, Orchid, Floriculture and Animal Husbandry Sector and Fishermen Communities from Marine and inland Fisheries (The Fisherman are no more getting their fish catch, because od change in ocean currents, due to Climate Change), of PAN India. With your continued contributions, we hope to do even more. Communities living in and around agricultural farmlands, forests, wetlands, rivers, mangroves and coastal areas play a critical role in conserving our planetary natural resources. In fact, their livelihoods are hugely impacted and need your kind continued support.
