Climate Justice For Africa

A new Africa is possible

As the climate crisis bears down on us, we are faced with a new health crisis, Covid-19, which brings with it its own as well as other multiplying threats to us all over the world, but especially in Africa. A few of us who identify as African social movements and allied civil society groups came together in the last few weeks to think through the impacts and implications of the crises upon us, and to build together our analysis and a call with an initial set of demands to our African governments and institutions.

We are now asking you to endorse this statement that was developed as a result of this convergence, which presents as an opportunity to unite our voices and strengthen the advocacy for climate justice during these difficult times.
