As you follow the new sports missions, your team of climate change experts is making progress and discovering the countries featured in this edition.
mission Sierra Leone
The first stop on your journey is Sierra Leone, a small West African country of 6.6 million inhabitants. Since 1990, Action Against Hunger has been working with the government to strengthen health systems, improve access to drinking water and treat undernutrition. As one of the African countries with the highest annual rainfall, Sierra Leone is now experiencing the effects of climate change. In the face of changing weather patterns, communities need to adapt and build resilience quickly. You are going to join the local team to support them in their missions: are you up to the challenge?
mission Ethiopia & Kenya
Congratulations on your commitment in Sierra Leone! The next part of your journey continues in Ethiopia and Kenya, fragile and conflict-prone states. In recent years, food and nutritional insecurity in these two countries has increased dramatically. They suffer from locust invasions and periods of severe drought that destroy the livelihoods of their inhabitants. Action Against Hunger continues to struggle to ensure humanitarian and development support in this region. The teams need urgent reinforcements, join them as soon as possible!
You’ve already completed half of your missions! Here you are in Madagascar, the fifth largest island in the world. Here, extreme weather conditions have intensified due to climate change, increasing the food vulnerability of the population. To help the Malagasy people cope, Action Against Hunger is implementing a multi-sectoral programme including activities in the health & nutrition, water & hygiene and food security sectors. It seeks to strengthen the resilience of the local and national populations in a sustainable manner. Your new missions await you at the Madagascar headquarters!
You have arrived in Bangladesh, one of the most densely populated countries in the world, but also one of the most vulnerable to climate change. Natural disasters such as floods, tropical cyclones and tornadoes hit the country almost every year. And it’s only getting worse, with some villages now flooding half the year. Action Against Hunger is working with local communities to teach new climate-resilient farming practices to the people. You come and see the progress of the projects carried out by the local teams before returning home for good from this great adventure!
