Climate Change Justice And Conservation Using ARTS

Do you remember the time , when the weather forecast was the weather forecast, Do you remember the time when the weather man would predict and his predictions would be true? We live in a time , when nothing is predicatble ,our climate is changing day by day and month by month and the covid-19 pandemic is not helping it has made things even worse.

Our project uses the arts to pass information to school children and we are hopeful that once the pandemic subsides we will make more inroads in working with our younger generations , showing them the importance of taking care of our enviroment which suports our climate .

Lets continue working together to bring justice for our climate !

According to the UN, “Forests cover one third of the Earth's land mass, performing vital functions around the world. Around 1.6 billion people - including more than 2,000 indigenous cultures - depend on forests for their livelihoods, medicines, fuel, food and shelter”. They are also the “most biologically-diverse ecosystems on land, home to more than 80% of the terrestrial species of animals, plants and insects”. Yet despite all of these priceless ecological, economic, social and health benefits, global deforestation, forest fires and other harmful practices continues at an alarming rate. Therefore, our project also aims to look at how we can build better solutions on how to strengthen the resilience of our communities.

We do require  financial support for our project to educate our communities as we streghten their resilience using the Arts,

Climate change is the third main driver of the reversal in global poverty reduction: its effects are already evident but will intensify in the years to come. Under baseline scenarios, the combined effects of climate change could push between 68 million and 132 million more people into poverty by 2030.

 

A changing climate affects the availability of clean water and the salination of soil, and increases sea levels and average temperatures, all of which are steadily and inexorably making life more difficult for the poorest. With their livelihoods predominantly based on agriculture and fishing, the poorest are least able to adapt or move elsewhere—even though they have contributed least to this problem in the first place.

 

 

The impacts of climate change can also raise food prices, worsen people’s health, and increase exposure to disasters. Although the poor are not always the most exposed, they are certainly more vulnerable and less resilient to the impacts of climate change. The richest and most energy intensive countries have contributed the most to this problem, but they can assist the poorest countries by upholding sustained commitments to reducing their carbon emissions, investing in new energy technologies, and allowing higher levels of migration.

 

 

But, as noted in the World Bank’s Shock Waves report, even the boldest actions for reducing global poverty are most likely to help after, rather than before, the 2030 goal. In the short term, however, global cooperation to facilitate poor communities’ more effective adaptation and resilience to the effects of climate change is both a moral imperative and a strategic necessity.And community Focus Group project is working towards this, We need more support Will you join us ?

We are living in interesting times, when no one seems to be sure of anything, Covid-19 has disrupted our lives and our enviroment and climate , our economies have been forced to slow down because of the strict quarantine measures.

Covid -19 has impacted our climate in a very intriguing manner and many in our country can attest to this , it seems the lack of using public transport and economic activities reduced carbon emmissions and the enviroment got some rest for a while , which was very good , but how sustainable was this effect we will never tell.

Our project plans to plant at least 3000 trees by the end of 2020 and mostly in our Nairobi area, we also plan to organise 10 young enviroment and climate change advocates training and workshop to empower them with communication and other skills.
