    Developing countries, especially Cameroon are going to bear the brunt of climate change and suffer most from its negative impacts. Climate change is increasing inter-annual rainfall variability and the frequency of extreme events, leading to accelerated rates of degradation of soil and water resources upon which communities depend for their livelihoods. These changes are threatening development advances such as the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. Our organization strives to complement efforts made by international development partners and governments to combat climate change and its effects. However, to source funding from donor agencies has become very competitive. Hence, the need for strong, viable and winning project proposals to access the dwindling available funds from relevant donor agencies. That is where the services of the volunteers become indispensable. After the successful collaboration for this assignment, the online volunteers will be awarded certificates of appreciation, and their input shall be mentioned in relevant publications of the organization.
