Rotary International has now added ‘Supporting the Environment’ as its seventh ‘Area of Focus’ (categories of service activities supported by global grants). 

Areas of focus provide Rotarians with a guide to where the Rotary organisation should concentrate its humanitarian efforts.  By doing so, we become a much more effective organisation.

‘Supporting the environment’ joins peacebuilding and conflict prevention; disease prevention and treatment; water, sanitation, and hygiene; maternal and child health; basic education and literacy; and community economic development.  This is an acknowledgement by Rotary of how fundamental the issues of environment protection and sustainability have become around the world.
