Preparing for the Impacts of Climate Change: ALUS
A one-pager with a case study from the Impact of Climate Change on Social Purpose Organizations(SPOs) report.
A nationwide farmer-led charitable organization that engages farmers with the ecosystem services their land provides and encourages implementing nature-based solutions on agricultural land. The organization is self-described as a SPO with environmental co-benefits, meaning there are positive environmental outcomes from their actions as an organization. Since 2000, ALUS has partnered with over 450 Canadian provincial and federal organizations.
Within their catchment areas, ALUS fosters relationships with the local Indigenous communities, local corporations, and social purpose organizations that impact the surrounding communities.
