Adapting to Climate Change

Sustainable Ambassador Podcast

Apr 26 2024 • 26 mins

In this episode, I speak with Joshua Amponsem and Nathaniel Matthews about their work to drive conversations, partnerships, and programs that drive climate resilience and adaption through their community partners.


Driven by their work supporting local communities, and recognizing that many of these areas are already experiencing the impact of climate change, their work is centered around building community-led partnership models, and through our conversation we speak about the challenges they see, shifting conversations toward resilience, and building partnerships.


This is an excellent conversation that identifies a number of barriers but speaks to the power of communities, trusts, and great partnerships to deliver solutions.
