El Salvador: Climate Action

As activists prepare for one of the largest climate days in history - some 250,000 people are expected to march in New York on Sunday 21 September - a broad alliance of organisations and GCAP constituents including youth and indigenous people are holding a Celebration of Sustainability in El Salvador's second largest city, Santa Ana.

This festival of solidarity will focus on creativity, invention and innovation in the areas of food sovereignty, natural medicine, folk arts and ecological tools like energy-saving stoves and solar energy.

Climate Change, Dams and Deforestation: The Bolivian Tragedy

By Carmen Capriles

I must share with you a little of the grief that we are suffering here in Bolivia over the past month.

Bolivia has endured the worst wet season in years, despite the fact that this has been caused by neither an El Nino or La Nina weather pattern.

58,000 families have already been affected, including 80% of the indigenous people living in the lowlands of the Amazonian forest.  At least 56 people have been killed.

Let's be clear. This is not just an act of Mother Nature. There are three major causes:

  • Climate Change
  • The Dams in Brazil
  • Deforestation

  

 

 

Leave No One Behind! Initial GCAP Response to the UN Post-2015 High Level Panel Report

Following ten months of discussion and consultations, the UN High Level Panel on Post-2015 (HLP) has presented its vision and recommendations for a new global development framework that will take effect when the Millennium Development Goals expire in two and a half years.  In this article, GCAP presents its initial assessment of what the UN High Level Panel on Post-2015 got right and what needs to be improved. This statement is being submitted to several UN agencies, including the UN Secretary-General's office, the High Level Panel on Post-2015 and the UN Millennium Campaign. GCAP National Coalitions and Constituency Groups are also petitioning their national governments for action on these issues.
