Empowering People

In the face of extreme droughts in China's Yunnan Province, families are finding ways not only to survive, but to thrive, with the help of micro-finance loans and alternative energy options. Biogas converters, solar water heaters and other alternative energy units mean less time spent gathering firewood for household use, which is helping to slow deforestation and reduce carbon emissions in the region. There is still more to be done. You can get involved by supporting the Conservancy’s work in China.
