Climate Scientists Warn of Dire Consequences as Global Heating Exceeds Targets: A Call to Action by CAFA

In an exclusive survey by The Guardian, leading climate scientists predict global temperatures will surpass the 1.5°C target, likely reaching at least 2.5°C this century. This spells disaster, with heightened risks of famines, conflicts, and extreme weather events. Despite clear evidence, governments have failed to act, leaving many experts feeling hopeless. However, there's consensus that every fraction of a degree matters.

This urgent call to action resonates strongly with CAFA's mission. We recognise the pivotal role that membership organisations play in driving change. CAFA stands ready to mobilise associations worldwide to confront this crisis head-on.

While the challenges are daunting, CAFA sees an opportunity for associations to lead by example. By implementing climate action initiatives internally and supporting their members in sustainability efforts, associations can make a significant impact. Collaboration, innovation, and advocacy are key pillars of CAFA's approach.

Despite the grim outlook, CAFA remains committed to fostering hope and resilience. Together with our members, we strive to be part of the solution.
