The world is running out of time to prevent the worst impacts of climate change.
As national governments and the private sector fail to take action proportional to the crisis, frontline communities have stepped up. Indigenous and local communities, human rights defenders, local government leaders, women, and youth have built a global climate movement resisting climate damaging industries and denouncing the inaction of world leaders.
The Frontlines of Climate Justice campaign builds on the work of local communities and defenders around the world working on demanding profound change. The campaign will amplify their voices and expose the tactics used by extractive and agribusiness companies to violate communities’ rights. Our goal is to ensure that policymakers recognize the central role that frontline communities must play in the global response to the climate crisis and to defend the rights of frontline communities to speak up without fear of reprisals.
