What is a climate protection project?
Climate protection projects demonstrate saving greenhouse gases and make an important contribution to combating global warming. In addition, they promote sustainable development in the project countries, for example by improving the supply of clean drinking water, expanding local infrastructure, creating jobs, or protecting biodiversity.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations provide a globally recognised benchmark to measure these positive effects. Their goals include the fight against poverty and hunger, the promotion long-life learning opportunities for all and the worldwide distribution of clean and affordable energy.
