Real people, real partnerships

VSO is working to combat climate change in some of the world's poorest communities; often the first to be affected and the hardest hit.

In Malawi, VSO are working in Salima, Karonga, and Dowa to develop inclusive and participatory Integrated Water Resource Management plans with government, civil society and communities, to reduce their vulnerability.

Just one of the thousands of people-to-people partnerships between Scotland and Malawi, working across all 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
