FEMINIST FRIDAYS #40: INDIGENOUS WOMEN AND CLIMATE ACTION

The participation of indigenous peoples in the UN climate negotiations has increased in recent years, and rightfully so, as they are some of the most vulnerable in the face of climate change. Preserving their traditional knowledge can vastly change their – and the world’s – fate. We get an update on the inclusion of indigenous peoples in the climate talks from the perspective of indigenous women in community leadership roles.

FEMINIST FRIDAYS #40: INDIGENOUS WOMEN AND CLIMATE ACTION

Monique Barbut, Executive Director of United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification

In many developing countries, the burden still lies on the women to support their families and meet basic needs such as food, water and wood. However, crop failures, water scarcity and migration of traditional crops are on the raise. More than a third of land is degraded, most of it happening only in the last two decades, while current land management practices contribute to 25% of global greenhouse gas emissions, affecting the livelihood of up to 2.9 billion people worldwide. UNCCD’s Executive Director Monique Barbut elaborates on the link between land, drought and migration; and the gendered drivers of land degradation in developing countries.

Just before the parties reconvened at the 23rd Conference of Parties of the UN Climate Change Convention in Bonn, UN Environment released the Emissions Gap Report to assess current mitigation efforts. UN Environment’s Erik Solheim updates us on – among others – global greenhouse gas emissions, coal phaseout, and how small island nations are most affected.
