What is Finnish Climate Collaboration?
For climate action to have a greater impact, we need to share best practices and build partnerships.
Our hope is that these examples will inspire new climate action around the world and encourage new organisations and companies to work together with Finnish climate actors.

Center for Environment and Community Assets Development (CECAD)
CECAD is a non-governmental organization established in 2004 that has been working in the most vulnerable provinces across the country including the Mekong River Delta. Their focus has been on the environment and communities in order to preserve biodiversity, help implement changes in response to climate change, improve living conditions, reduce social imbalances, and assist in the development of communities. CECAD has implemented the climate resilience project in the Mekong River Delta with funding from the Embassy of Finland since 2020. The project has contributed to increasing awareness of local communities, especially youths, reporters and high school students on saline intrusion and climate change adaptation. CECAD has also joined the campaign on climate action started in 2021 with the early warning system for timely updating local people on saline levels in rivers for better resilience to saline intrusion.
