Gender and climate-induced migration

Briefing paper by Isabella Szukits

The climate crisis affects millions of people worldwide. However, not everyone feels its effects equally. The main causes of global heating are the burning of fossil fuels and our current economic system, which is based on the exploitation of nature and people. People in the Global South and young people have not contributed as much to these causes, but they have to live with and deal with the effects.

Feminist South Perspectives on the Climate Crisis – Online Talk Series

The climate crisis is accelerating. Yet rich nations delay decisive action, while many countries in the Global South already face the harshest impacts of the climate crisis, resulting in lives and homes lost, existences and ecosystems wiped out. At the same time, climate-induced impacts like droughts and water-scarcity are often exacerbated by resource extraction, ranging from mineral (Gold, Lithium) to biomass (wood, soy, palmoil, rubber, leather) resources.

Against these adversities, many strong women fight the climate crisis on the frontlines in the Global South. Women often form the backbone of climate movements.

In this series of online talks, WIDE and Südwind invite […]
