Feminist perspectives from the frontlines of the climate crisis
ActionAid UK policy brief sharing the experiences of three women on the frontlines of the climate crisis – Chan Kimcheng in Cambodia, Anastacia Plilan in Kenya, and Priscilla Mbarumun Achakpa in Nigeria. The brief shares the ways in which they are leading climate action; the challenges they are facing; and how they feel their voices can be better integrated into effective and inclusive climate response.
Gender equality and climate action are mutually reinforcing, with progress on women’s rights supporting effective and inclusive climate action, and vice versa.
Yet, despite being disproportionately impacted by the climate crisis and at the helm of grassroots climate action, women in the Majority World remain excluded from decision-making and underrepresented in environmental leadership at all levels. This briefing shares the experiences of three women who are leading action on the frontlines of the climate crisis and presents their recommendations for more effective and inclusive climate policy and programming.
