Climate Change Policy
Islamic Relief’s Policy on climate change is outlined in this document. It sets out the foundations that underpin the policy, putting it in the context of Islamic perspectives, scientific evidence, Islamic Relief’s experience, human development and poverty reduction; followed by a series of key policy messages which IR uses in its programmes and advocates to external audiences in order to address climate change.
The objectives of the policy are:
- to provide guidance for the family on the role IR can play in addressing climate change;
- to advocate to political forums and external audiences what IR believes the issues are, and what should be done about them.
