Organised by IWRAW Asia Pacific, this session at the Global Just Recovery Gathering invited participants to analyse and document the impacts of climate change on their multiple lived realities and work collectively to find ways these can be mitigated through an intentionally intersectional approach. The session is also intended to contribute to filling the knowledge gap for these groups and by extension, activists and funders, and to create a dialogue to address the needs of communities who are left out of many national, regional and global processes and conversations.
With panelists Simone Hill (Promoting Empowerment Through Awareness For Les/Bi Women, Belize), Pratima Gurung (National Indigenous Disabled Women Association Nepal), Jhannel Tomlinson (Young People for Action and Climate Change, Jamaica) and Ilisapeci Raileqe (Rainbow Pride Foundation, Fiji).
