Funding brief: CJRF grants focus on four inter-related issues through which climate change may profoundly affect the lives and prospects of our selected constituencies, namely: water access, food security and sovereignty, sustainable livelihoods, and climate-related migration and relocation. By using these four issue areas as project “entry points,” CJRF aims to address the most profound injustices associated uniquely with climate change impacts.
