Congratulations to SCALE's 2021 Creative Green Adaptation Award winners!

SCALE called out to humanitarian and development practitioners, who are rapidly adapting the ways in which they deliver critical aid and programming, and asked them to share with us how they are helping communities around the globe face unprecedented challenges due to climate change.

We met with these five organizations on December 9th for a discussion on what they learned, how they did it, and what they plan to do next. Watch the presentation recording below!
