Connected Against Hunger

Take a stand against climate change and hunger with our virtual fitness challenge!

Connected Against Hunger is a corporate wellness initiative that offers employees the opportunity to participate in a range of fitness activities like running, cycling and yoga while taking a stand against climate change and hunger. Every day, Action Against Hunger teams around the world come face-to-face with the realities of climate change and its impacts on our global food system. With Connected Against Hunger, learn how we’re helping communities in need work toward a healthy, sustainable future and improve their long-term food security so that no one is left hungry.

Your employees participate by choosing daily challenges to complete on their own or as a team as they travel the globe and explore Action Against Hunger’s missions via the Connected Against Hunger app. To motivate teams and build community, the app features individual and team rankings, a live news feed, and a live social wall where participants can share their experiences. Proceeds from the initiative will support Action Against Hunger’s lifesaving work around the world.

WITH #CONNECTEDAGAINSTHUNGER, LEARN HOW WE’RE FIGHTING CLIMATE CHANGE AND HUNGER!

Artificial Intelligence in the Sahel

When the project was launched, in collaboration with the European Space Agency, the idea was simple: use remote sensing to monitor the state of the biomass (grass for pastures) in real time and thus guide the region’s herders to the best grazing areas.

Recently, in collaboration with the World Bank and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, we expanded the system’s coverage area and improved its algorithms to include high-resolution images of surface water and biomass

We have collected important questions for the 107 sentinel sites in the five countries (Mali, Niger, Senegal, Mauritania, and Burkina Faso) where information is collected every 10 days (animal health status, pasture, etc.).

One Man One Tree in Nigeria

In Nigeria’s Yobe State, recurrent droughts have had a significant impact on both agricultural production and the environment and consequently on family food security. More than half of Yobe state’s 3.5 million inhabitants are in need of humanitarian assistance.

One of the methods used to combat desertification in a sustainable manner is forest planting. Trees contribute to the environment by producing oxygen, improving air quality and climate, retain water, preserving soil and contributing to the healthy development of wildlife.

Resilience Programs in Chad

In Chad, the project aims to strengthen women’s resilience to climate change in Kanem province and raise awareness. We are setting up environmental clubs with a “Triple E” approach (Efficient Environmental Education), climate change training, and climate radio broadcasts.

At the same time, activities in agro-ecology and agro-forestry are carried out (reforestation of areas in the process of degradation), as well as income-generating activities.

Above-Ground Agriculture in Ivory Coast

In the Ivory Coast, we’re implementing environmentally friendly above-ground micro-gardening techniques, and supporting the development of local short food circuits.

We’re Counting on you!
