Scotland's Climate Bill

Climate change affects us all, but it's the world's poorest people who are impacted most. They feel the worst effects in day-to-day life but have done the least to cause climate change.

This is a momentous year for tackling climate change in Scotland as the Scottish Government prepares to introduce a new Climate Bill. The Climate Bill gives us the opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to build a better world, free from poverty and climate change.

Alongside Stop Climate Chaos Scotland, we are campaigning for:

  • a net zero emissions target by 2050
  • an interim target of 77% by 2030
  • a link between climate plans and Scottish budgets
  • greater transparency and specific policy actions around transport, farming and home energy efficiency

Most of us won’t even harvest anything this year because of the rains coming at the wrong time of the year.

Gertrude Hamooya, one of 100 global voices calling for an ambitious Climate Bill

Gertrude Hamooya, 38 is a small-scale farmer in the Chipembi area of Chisamba District in Zambia. She cultivates mainly maize and groundnuts but also keeps free range chickens.

'Our lives have become harder as farmers due to climate change. The dry spell we experienced at the beginning of this season meant that our crops could not make it even when the rains finally came, because when the rains did come, they were too heavy such that even a few plants that could have made it were destroyed by the floods.

'Most of us won’t even harvest anything this year because of the rains coming at the wrong time of the year.

'The heavy rains have also destroyed the few roads we have in the area making it extremely difficult for us to transport anything or even to go to the hospitals.

'I think richer countries should also help sensitise us on the disadvantages of charcoal burning and also help train us in other businesses as a way of survival.

'They should also help us financially because they’re also contributing to climate change because of their industries.'
