Climate Justice Feminist Participatory Action Research for Change

Conference | Subject : Call for Papers
Conference Date :30-Oct-2016 To 30 Oct 2016

Global warming, environmental degradation and climate disasters have been caused by the historical exploitation of the world’s resources and carbon by the wealthiest nations and individuals. The richest 10% of the world’s population is responsible for 50% of greenhouse gas emissions, while the poorest 50% caused only 10% . The powerful members of the G7 are responsible for 59% of historical global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Sadly, it is the communities that have contributed almost nothing to global emissions, and particularly women, who are among those most threatened and affected by climate change. For instance, the US emits more than 175 times more carbon per person than Nepal, yet the increasing temperatures in the Himalayan region are higher than global averages. Countries of the Global South are suffering the after-effects of the relentless greed of a very privileged few.
