Cool Earth Impact Report <br/> Summer 2018

Cool Earth is committed to sharing information openly, broadly and deliberately. Over the past two years, we have focused on doing this, within the organisation and with our rainforest partners. We are now aiming to do the same with our donors and stakeholders. Cool Earth’s digital team is working on ways to close the gap between supporters and the people on the ground and in these reports, we hope to provide a true picture of Cool Earth’s successes and challenges.

In Peru, a review of funded activity has sparked the development of a new plan for the next three years. In the Congo, the first project phase is complete and we’re looking to the future. And in Papua New Guinea, lessons learnt with the Asháninka are helping to shape how sustainable livelihoods are built.

The Asháninka

When Cool Earth started working with the Asháninka and Awajún communities in the Peruvian Amazon, we wanted to improve well-being as well as develop income streams that could outprice forest destruction. We assumed the two went hand in hand. There’s no denying that Cool Earth’s interventions have had an impact. In January alone, Cool Earth assisted with seven emergency evacuations in the Asháninka partnership.

 

Papua New Guinea

Drop a seed in the tropics and it will grow. The sheer quantity of sunshine and rainfall create the perfect conditions for growth. With the right support, forest grown crops can increase in quality and yield in a very short space of time. But when it comes to sustainable livelihoods, that’s only half the battle.

Lubutu

Since 2015 Cool Earth has been lucky enough to work in partnership with Fauna and Flora International in The Democratic Republic of Congo. We have funded a community-led project in the community of Lubutu looking at reducing fuelwood use by introducing energy efficient stoves. Now this project is complete, 483 stoves have been built, and we can present some of the outcomes.
