Breaking Free from the tangible impacts and increasing trauma of climate chaos:
Fiji: in the aftermath of Cyclone Winston, DIVA is continuing to fight for climate justice and call for an end to destructive industries while women’s & local groups are also working together to heal communities and families facing the impacts of climate change through community programming, open spaces for dialogue and sports.
Philippines: Farmers from Kidapawan,North Cotabato, Philippines were seeking food after the impacts of drought and loss of crops after a devastating El Nino, a situation aggravated by climate change. They faced a violent response to their cries for help from the government which ended in the lost of life. Organizations like APWLD and BAYAN have been working to bring justice and support to this effort.
