South South North

SouthSouthNorth (SSN) is a network-based non-profit organisation sharing two decades of experience in the fields of climate change and social development. We directly pursue structural poverty reduction in Sub Saharan Africa, Asia and Latin America by building Southern capacity and delivering community based mitigation and adaptation projects. The former mitigate climate change by reducing global greenhouse gas emissions and the latter assist communities to adapt to the adverse effects of climate change.
