By | April 26th, 2019|Categories: Advocacy, Events, Gender equality, News, Press release, WECF|0 Comments

For immidiate release Tunis 26 April 2019   Mary (South Sudan) - We, the participants of the Tunis Forum for Gender Equality taking place in Tunis from April 24th to 26th 2019, have gathered to review the progress of the UN Security Council resolution1325 and the Beijing Platform for Action. A day before this Forum started, the UN Security Council adopted Resolution 2467 in which it excludes references to sexual and reproductive health services for women having suffered sexual violence in the context of conflicts . We are jolted once again, and reminded that we have to stand firm in our fight for women's equal rights. We as feminists activists at the Forum, are appalled by the US position to refuse survivors of sexual violence the full support they need. Deema (Lebanon) - In 2019 it is unacceptable that a Security Council Resolution on Sexual Violence in Conflict is adopted, while omitting essential sexual and [...]

A gloomy future for climate finance at COP24

By | December 11th, 2018|Categories: Advocacy, Climate, COP, GFC, News, Outreach|0 Comments

By Coraina de la Plaza, Global Forest Coalition Climate finance has again been one of the most sticky issues in international climate change negotiations this year. Since the signing of the Paris Agreement (PA) and well before it, there have been many words of goodwill and promises made to deliver the finance desperately needed in order to address the climate crisis. But most of these promises have gone with the wind. The second week of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference of the Parties 24 (COP24) kicked off yesterday, in Katowice, Poland, but the text on finance is still too broad for the consideration of the Ministers that have arrived to take over the negotiations, and lacks clear ways of accounting for and providing the necessary information on climate finance. Michael Eckhart, Global Head of Environmental Finance, Citi Bank, suggests that investment bankers should take the lead on [...]

Forest Cover 57 – 1.5°C from a community perspective

By | December 3rd, 2018|Categories: Biodiversity, Climate, GFC, News, Outreach|0 Comments

Welcome to the 57th issue of Forest Cover, the Global Forest Coalition’s magazine. It provides a space for environmental justice activists from across the world to present their views on international forest-related policies. As governments congregate once more for a climate COP, this time in Katowice, Poland, Forest Cover 57 looks critically at the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)’s latest assessment report on 1.5°C of global warming. It analyses what such a target means from a community perspective and makes the case for community conservation as an effective, safe and equitable way of removing carbon from the atmosphere. Through participatory community assessments, the Community Conservation Resilience Initiative (CCRI) has shown how rights-based approaches to conservation and forest restoration work in practice, and can be used as a model for global efforts to fight climate change. This issue makes the case that there are community-based, gender responsive alternatives to the technological, corporate-controlled [...]
