Our approaches protect the environment and the families whose livelihoods depend on it.

Lutheran World Relief helps communities protect their agricultural assets in the face of challenging climate conditions and improve their resilience to natural hazards like floods and droughts. We introduce environmentally sustainable farming practices so that communities can get the most out of their land while conserving and restoring the natural resources. And we find ways to capture and protect water, even in the most challenging environments.

We work with local and national governments to facilitate the equitable access to and protection of natural resources. And we help communities assess their vulnerabilities to natural hazards and develop the plans and skills they need to prepare for them.
