Think tank

The Climate Action Partnership (CAP) is a powerful alliance of South African environmental NGOs that aims to reduce the impacts of climate change and increase the resilience of South Africa's biodiversity and communities by promoting intact ecosystems that are connected at a landscape level, building human capacity and implementing climate change adaptation and mitigation. CAP's Objectives are: to raise awareness around climate change and the links between climate change and the conservation of natural habitat; to promote the integrity of climate change projects by promoting the adoption of globally accepted standards, with an emphasis on the Climate, Community and Biodiversity Standards (CCBS); to advise on and support Southern African solutions for mitigation and adaptation to climate change with a biodiversity conservation outcome; to promote cross-sectoral policy that supports climate change mitigation and adaptation activities with a biodiversity conservation outcome; to achieve carbon reductions for the head offices of the CAP partner organizations.
