Demand a New Deal for Climate Justice
From the indigenous communities whose homes have been destroyed by Amazon fires, to the farming communities in Malawi starving because of drought, the people Christian Aid works with are not facing a climate crisis. They’re already living with it.
Those who have done the least to cause this crisis are now living and dying with its impacts.
Our current economic system is broken. It’s driving inequality, poverty and climate breakdown. But if we act now, we can build a better world, where everyone can flourish. It’s time for a New Deal for Climate Justice.
Will you call for a New Deal for Climate Justice?
In 2020, the UK government will be hosting the UN climate talks, giving it the opportunity to be a champion for climate justice. But to be a real champion, it must take rapid action at home and globally.
We want the UK Government to deliver a New Deal for Climate Justice. Specifically, we want the Government to:
transfer its fair share of finance and technology to poor and climate-vulnerable countries
stop fuelling fossil fuel expansion and support clean, renewable energy instead
develop renewable energy without exploiting people or destroying the environment in the Global South
curb the over-consumption that is driving climate breakdown
invest in decarbonising the UK economy in a way that addresses economic and social inequalities.
