    #GSWF2021 The Rise of Disaster Capitalism: Climate change, COVID-19 and the Green New Deal

    #GSWF2021 The Rise of Disaster Capitalism: Climate change, COVID-19 and the Green New Deal

    This episode unpacks “The Rise of Disaster Capitalism: Climate change, COVID-19 and the Green New Deal”. The current gap in discourse between affected communities on the ground, governments, and multilateral organisations on the impacts of extreme weather events requires that national communities are visible in regional and international political and climate spaces and that their narratives are shared and voices are heard. Marginalised communities are systematically excluded from these spaces, so it is vital to promote their participation in creating, developing, implementing, and monitoring policy responses to and plans on climate change and disaster relief that support their needs. Most of these policy pronouncements do not yet directly address the issues through an inclusive and intersectional approach. Ensuring the inclusion and engagement of women, youth, and others representing marginalised communities in the conversations concerning climate policies and programs, as well as post-COVID recovery measures, is critical for protecting their rights, livelihoods, and critical ecosystems, and biological diversity.

    #GSFW2021 Strengthening social inclusion in policy and financing processes to secure feminist and just climate transition

    #GSFW2021 Strengthening social inclusion in policy and financing processes to secure feminist and just climate transition

    In this episode, the panel explores methods of “Strengthening social inclusion in policy and financing processes to secure feminist and just climate transition”. The climate crisis severely threatens vulnerable communities’ livelihoods, access to food, water, and shelter. It exacerbates existing inequalities caused by differences in gender, socioeconomic class, race, ethnicity and age, and undermines development. Despite this, these communities, which also have the fewest resources to adapt or mitigate its effects, have drawn from their lived experiences to take countless inventive steps to slow it and address its impacts. Yet, they are often not involved in policy and decision-making. The global decision-making process needs to shift to more inclusivity and centre the voices, knowledge, and skills of communities, particularly women in the Global South, and leverage on their locally shaped climate solutions for inclusive and just climate transition.

    #GSWF2021 Disrupting Climate change and colonialism in the Global South

    #GSWF2021 Disrupting Climate change and colonialism in the Global South

    In this episode, the panellists unpack the relationship between climate change and colonialism in the Global South. Rooted in colonialism, the transatlantic slave trade, and an extractivist relationship to the natural world, conventional economic and development models have led to mass environmental destruction and continue to exacerbate the ongoing climate crisis. Likewise, the human-made consequences of climate change exacerbate economic inequalities, destroy livelihoods, infrastructure, and social safety nets, and impact the resources and strategies available for governments and the global community to provide for each other and prioritise care and well-being of people and planet as the main objective of economic policymaking. These consequences include immediate effects in the wake of extreme weather events exacerbated by climate change and long-term effects of the global rise in temperature, with a disproportionate effect on low- and middle-income countries, particularly those in warmer climates in the Global South.
