Women's Tribunals on Gender and Climate Justice
GCAP and the Feminist Task Force are launching a set of Women and Climate Justice Tribunals. For information on each tribunal please refer to the list on the right hand side of this page.
Starting in October, 15 countries around the world – Argentina, Bangladesh, Botswana, Brazil, El Salvador, Ghana, The Democratic Republic of Congo, Mexico, Nigeria, Peru, Uganda, Pakistan, India, Nepal and Zambia- will host ‘Women’s Hearings on Gender and Climate Justice’ based on the recognition that although women play a central role in providing effective responses to the challenges imposed by climate change in their communities – their voices are not being adequately heard in the debates around climate change at the national, regional or international level.
Dedicated to the work and legacy of Prof. Wangari Maathai, the Climate Hearings aim to facilitate authentic, specific and exemplary testimonies from women - with a focus on up scaling local solutions and bringing the voices of those most affected to the national and international level ahead of the COP17 Summit that will be held in Durban, South Africa at the end of this year.
Full coverage of the tribunals can be found at this web address:
