Climate Justice Issues
Mwanahamisi Singano is leading us in such an exciting conversation today. Covid 19 has further highlighted the disproportionate impacts of climate change on marginalized and disenfranchised populations who are the least responsible for climate change. The COVID-19 pandemic provides a good example of rights violations increasing during a crisis – and an emphatic disproof of the assertion that ‘we are all in this together’. Refugees and migrants certainly paid a heavier price during a global pandemic that many believed impacted all human beings equally.

Across the globe, women are the majority (between 60 to 70 percent) working in the informal sector, which is characterized by low pays, no job security, less access to social protection, limited health services, and worse women are more prone to violence and harassment in the workplace. In building better and forward, every COVID-19 recovery plan must include the leadership and voices of women in the decision-making.

The COVID-19 global crisis has made starkly visible the fact that the world’s formal economies and the maintenance of our daily lives are built on the invisible and unpaid labor of women and girls.
