Climate change is ravaging communities around the world. Extreme weather conditions like droughts, floods, and cyclones are driving communities further into poverty.
Women and girls bear the brunt. They’re forced to drop out of school to provide for their families. They’re being exposed to early marriage, violence and female genital mutilation. We’re scaling up our work in climate affected areas to ensure women are supported as the impact of climate change increases.
Will you become a monthly supporter and help women survive in climate affected areas?
Your support could help:
Scale up support for women to prepare and respond to climate-related emergencies
Provide training on new farming methods that will help women adapt to climate change and provide for their families
Campaign for the Australian Government to reduce carbon emissions and increase climate financing in line with its global responsibilities
Expose the harmful impacts of Australian fossil fuel companies overseas that are expanding operations and impacting some of the poorest communities globally
Promote just and sustainable alternatives that promote resilience
Become a monthly supporter and help ensure women are supported to survive through climate change?
Climate justice for women and frontline communities
How is Australia accelerating the climate crisis?
When fossil fuels are burned, they release large amounts of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, into the air. Greenhouse gases trap heat in our atmosphere, causing global heating. Australia is the world’s highest carbon emitter per capita among all wealthy countries and the third-largest exporter of fossil fuels. And our recent report revealed that the potential carbon emissions of overseas fossil fuel projects by Australian companies in low-income countries are actually increasing.
Already the average global temperature has increased by 1C. Warming above 1.5°C risks further sea level rise, extreme weather, biodiversity loss and species extinction, as well as food scarcity, worsening health and poverty for millions of women and their communities worldwide.
What are we campaigning for?
With your help, we'll keep pushing the Australian Government to recognise their responsibility to lead rapid climate action and to:
1) Scale up support for women to adapt to climate disasters
2) Reduce carbon emissions and replace economic and energy systems that cause inequality and environmental destruction with just alternatives
3) Continue exposing the harmful impacts of Australian fossil fuel companies on communities globally.
