Solutions for Climate Change

Increasing temperatures, melting glaciers, decreasing snow and ice coverage, rising sea levels, droughts, floods, natural disasters, all indicate that climate change is a fact. Taking action against climate change for the future of the planet and humanity is in our hands and in the hands of governments.

The Durban Climate Summit in South Africa has shown that countries are unable to agree on how to deal with problems affecting the planet and the environment.

Some of these solutions to climate change try to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the cause of global warming, and others decrease the consumption of our natural resources:

  • Avoid the use of fossil fuels to reduce CO2 emissions: Alternative measures could be implemented to the use of oil, natural gas and coal, which in their production and transport emit greenhouse gases.
  • Adapt infrastructures such as buildings or houses so as not to waste energy: Properly isolating homes and not using cement for their construction. In this way, the emission of greenhouse gases that affect global warming would be avoided.
  • Try to avoid the use of cars: For example, moving the workplace closer to home or using public transportation. Encourage the use of the bicycle to travel on short trips, and thus save 30 grams of CO2 for every 4.5 kilometers.
  • Encourage moderate consumption and the purchase of ecological products that do not harm the environment.
  • Support initiatives that promote the arrest of deforestation: It is estimated that the timber industry emits about 1,500 tons of CO2 annually.


From home you can also help curb Climate Change:

  • Exchanging traditional light bulbs for others with low consumption: replacing some bulbs with others you can save more than 45 kilograms of CO2 per year.
  • Avoiding the use of hot water: to heat the water we need a lot of energy. Did you know that washing your clothes with cold water saves about 150 kilos of CO2?
  • Buy products with recycled paper.
  • Promoting efficient driving: using the appropriate gear for speed or not braking or accelerating sharply.

The poorest countries, which depend mainly on their economic resources and related activities, are very vulnerable to climate change. The ability of these communities to adapt to climate change is essential to reduce their fragility and ensure that they survive and develop in the face of these adversities.

Regions like Burkina Faso are in tension in the face of global warming and the variability of the current climate. It is in our hands that these people learn to cope with the natural disasters caused by climate change and the extreme poverty in which they find themselves.

At Cinnova we are committed to the fight to stop climate change and we work together with the most vulnerable communities to its effects.

Collaborate and Act against the serious consequences of Global Warming.
