Climate justice: African perspectives

Climate change is the biggest challenge we face in the world today. Everywhere we see its impact. People are struggling with the devastating effects in their daily lives. For African countries this is becoming more challenging every year. Even though they are historically least responsible for causing climate change, the African region is hit hardest by its consequences.

However, the most important decisions regarding climate action are often made by those who do not feel the biggest impact and who generally have better capabilities to deal with climate change themselves. Not everyone affected by climate change is able to make their voice heard in the decision-making processes. Afrikadag Online is a call to action, to do include African perspectives in policies in the Netherlands and the EU. Join our call and come into action.

Climate Justice: The Time is Now!

The issue of climate change dominates the news and our minds. The IPCC Report that was released in August was clear and alarming: Climate change is here, and it’s here to stay if we do not take comprehensive collective action. However, although the news of climate change now slowly gathers more attention, one side of the story is continuously missing: the voices of the people most vulnerable to climate change.

“De klimaatcrisis is in essentie een onrechtvaardigheid.”

In de aanloop naar de publicatie van ons rapport Climate Justice: African Perspectives interviewde de FMS verschillende activisten, politici en experts die zich met klimaatrechtvaardigheid (climate justice) bezighouden. Want wat betekent klimaatrechtvaardigheid voor hen? En hoe zetten zij zich hiervoor in? De tweede in deze reeks is Bertram Zagema, beleidsadviseur en onderzoeker bij Oxfam Novib.
