  • Self-Defense Means Political Autonomy! The Women’s Movement of Kurdistan
           Envisioning and Pursuing New Paths for Radical Democratic Autonomy
    • Authors: Dilar Dirik
      Abstract: Abstract The Kurdish women’s movement is involved in an active militant struggle against ultra-patriarchal groups such as ISIS, but also in the process of mobilizing a popular movement for feminist social justice, change, and autonomous self-determination. This article describes the ideological and organizational principles of the women’s movement and argues that political consciousness and autonomy resulted in the elaboration of a radical freedom concept in Kurdistan.

  • Funding Trends Affecting Women’s Rights and Gender Equality
           Organizing
    • Authors: Fareen Walji
      Abstract: Abstract In a rapidly changing global operating environment, women’s rights organizations and social justice allies are finding it increasingly important to identify and investigate global trends affecting funding for women’s rights and gender equality. Five key trends identified and discussed in this article include that (1) the space for active citizen and civil society engagement continues to shrink, (2) the private (and in particular corporate) sector presence in women’s rights work is both growing and evolving, (3) the growing global crises of climate change, increases in refugees and migration patterns are being used by governments to redirect ODA, (4) forms of organizing, collaborating and raising resources are shifting away from traditional models and finally (5) shifting political and economic climates particularly in the BRICS and elsewhere leads to both new challenges and opportunities for resourcing women’s rights and gender equality.

  • Self-Care: An Act of Political Warfare or a Neoliberal Trap'
    • Authors: Inna Michaeli
      Abstract: Abstract There is a momentum for self-care and well-being in feminist movements. Beyond neoliberal trends, we can find deeply politicized and inter-generational practices of care, and feminist ways of conceiving self-care and collective care, building sustainable and transformative organizations and movements, and comprehending what being well means in situations of injustice. In different corners on the world, feminists are developing provocative and creative models of care for survivors of violence, human rights defenders, activists, and organizations.

  • State of Our Feminist Movements: The Power of Young Feminist Organizing
    • Authors: Felogene Anumo
      Abstract: Abstract At a global level, young feminists experience a myriad of challenges that affect their daily lives and well-being and threaten their organizing. As exposed by the AWID 2016 Forum, young feminists are using ground-breaking strategies to confront some of the most urgent issues of our time, working together with some of the most vulnerable populations. However, they remain extremely under-resourced and their long-term sustainability is at risk. Investing in young feminist organizing is essential to the life of our movements as it creates a pipeline of leaders, diversifies voices, perspectives and deepens inclusivity.

  • Why Legal Reform is Insufficient to Ensure Sexual Equality
    • Authors: Geetanjali Misra; Nafisa Ferdous
      Abstract: Abstract The history of decriminalization and other sexual rights struggles as they intersect with legal reform was highlighted in the 2016 AWID Forum. This article takes three case studies from India spanning the movement to decriminalize homosexuality, the violence against women movement and the sex workers rights movement to explore the relationship between cultural change and legal reform.

           Feminisms Movement Building
    • Authors: Angelique V. Nixon
      Abstract: Abstract This article shares the highlights and successes of the Black Feminisms Forum and explains the necessity of Black space, Black women’s spaces and Black queer space (even within multi-ethnic and women of colour spaces), as well as visionary solidarity that was co-created and intentionally focused on BlackLove. It also discusses the Black Feminisms Forum as a continuous movement-building process for Black feminists activists, artists, community workers and agitators.

  • We Have to Wake Up, Humankind! Women’s Struggles for Survival and
           Climate and Environmental Justice
    • Authors: Maria Alejandra Rodriguez Acha
      Abstract: Abstract The climate and environmental crises of our times heighten existing inequalities and pose challenges to our very survival. The lives, livelihoods and bodies of women around the world are at the frontlines of its impacts and of the struggles to resist and build alternatives centred around justice and the sustainability of life. The 2016 AWID Forum gathered ecological and women’s rights activists to share experiences and perspectives on how the exploitation of people and planet is interlinked and interdependent and what shapes our resistance does and must take.

  • On Feminist Futures and Movement Imperatives
    • Authors: Awino Okech
      Abstract: Abstract This article focuses on key global trends that have an impact on how feminist movements are organizing. It draws attention to the urgency for feminist leadership at this political moment when far-right movements are featuring much more prominently in global and local politics. The article makes a case for shifting the locus of organizing from international policy spaces towards a greater emphasis on building feminist communities and drawing on the knowledge emerging from these spaces.

  • Institutional and Political Factors in Creating a Community of Practice on
           Mitigation: The Case of PlanCC, Peru
    • Authors: Jorge Chávez Granadino
      Abstract: Abstract This article explores the design, organization, decision-making processes and the final products of the first phase of the Project for Planning for Climate Change in Peru (PlanCC Project) between 2012 and 2014. It sheds light on a set of institutional factors that the author suggests are observed when dealing with the implantation of climate change mitigation policies and plans in a developing country context. This project confronted from its beginning, a series of institutional challenges that posed political, technical and administrative difficulties. This fact forced public officials to opt for a mixed public–private solution for the technical coordination and administration of the project, one that allowed PlanCC to deliver its proposed outputs on time. The article highlights key lessons learnt from this experience and suggests the importance of focusing on the diverse institutional, political and development contexts in order to enhance opportunities for aligning national and regional development priorities around global climate change mitigation goals.

           Climate Action
    • Authors: Gabriel Ferrero y de Loma-Osorio
      Abstract: Abstract The Paris Agreement on Climate Change represents a historical step forward to curb global climate change. However, the Paris Agreement is a necessary but insufficient instrument to advance Climate Justice. In this article we discuss why, and how, the 2030 Agenda—and the Sustainable Development Goals—is the indispensable and complementary framework to deliver on Climate Justice, together with the Paris Agreement.

  • Are International Non-Governmental Development Organizations Fuelling a
           ‘Conspiracy of Silence’ Around Climate Injustice'
    • Authors: Lorna Gold
      Abstract: Abstract This article reflects on my experience over the last decade working with International Non-Governmental Development Organizations (INGDOs) on advocacy and action related to climate justice. After presenting a brief summary of the current climate science and failing regulatory regime, with the consequences predicted for developing countries, I then go on to assess how INGDOs are currently responding. The assessment here is that on the whole, with a few notable exceptions, most INGDOs are not giving climate justice the level of urgency it requires, particularly in their public communications. Based on the scientific evidence relating to the multiple impacts of climate change on human development, I ask why it is that INGDOs are still not prioritizing this' I argue that by ignoring climate change in their public communications and outreach, INGDOs may be contributing to a conspiracy of silence which still surrounds climate change in Western societies. I end by suggesting some priority actions which INGDOs might consider in responding to the pressing challenge of climate justice.

  • Interconnection of Climate Change, Agriculture and Climate Justice:
           Complexities for Feeding the World Under Changing Climate
    • Authors: Deepak Ghimire; Dinesh Panday
      Abstract: Abstract Agriculture, among the several sectors affected, is a crucial sector in terms of both cause for and consequence of climate change. Small-holder and peasant farmers who are only responsible for a minor contribution to climate change are facing the brunt of its multiplying impacts. Such inequality in terms of contributions and impacts has led to the need and movement for climate justice. With an increasing concern on the equitable sharing of burdens and benefits of climate change, climate justice movements are at the center of global agendas and negotiations. Ensuring climate justice is a must to safeguard the rights of the vulnerable farmers and communities and can be achieved through conscientious actions of developed countries.

  • New Times for Women and Gender Issues in Biodiversity Conservation and
           Climate Justice
    • Authors: Isis Alvarez; Simone Lovera
      Abstract: Abstract Despite early recognition of women’s vital role in biodiversity conservation and increased resilience to climate change at the international policy level, only recently the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biodiversity has taken some concrete steps to mainstream gender in different biodiversity policies. It is expected that this increased recognition will lead to new policy approaches to enhance women’s participation in tackling biodiversity loss and climate change. Such approaches can contribute to climate justice by supporting financial and other forms of support to community-driven, ecosystem-based climate change mitigation and resilience initiatives that foster women’s rights, needs, roles and aspirations.

  • In Between Rhetoric and the UNFCCC’s Detachment from the Lived
           Realities of the People on the Frontlines of the Climate Crisis
    • Authors: Ruth Nyambura
      Pages: 205 - 210
      Abstract: Abstract The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) the world’s main forum for climate change negotiations is in a deep and ever-growing crisis. Between the piece-meal and inadequate pledges on emission reductions by developed countries (historical high emitters) that threaten to quickly catapult us to a 3.5 degree global temperature rise that will disproportionately affect those in the Global South, to the undue influence by fossil fuel companies and their lobbyists both blocking and co-opting progressive action in the space, the UNFCCC almost seems completely incapable of delivering on its mandate. While it is clear that the international climate negotiations seem completely disconnected from the material realities of those on the front-lines of the climate crises, a growing transnational climate, food and energy justice movement(s) is stepping up to challenge the glaring incompetence of the international negotiating space while also providing real alternatives to the multiple and intersecting crises of climate change to local communities around the world.

  • NGOs and the Climate Justice Movement in the Age of Trumpism
    • Authors: Tristan Quinn-Thibodeau; Brandon Wu
      Pages: 251 - 256
      Abstract: Abstract The election of Donald Trump presents a new context for climate justice. Local and national fights have gained importance, and building a mass movement has become a major strategic priority. NGOs need to support grassroots, frontline, and social movement leadership, overcoming structural challenges and joining fights on issues not traditionally associated with stopping climate change. These alliances of movements and NGOs represent the best hope for people and the planet.

      Abstract: Abstract This article reflects on experiences with IES-Brasil project to generate credible, legitimate and useful knowledge for domestic and international climate policy. It offers insight into how a participatory scenario building project was given shape in Brazil and how it sought to generate credible, legitimate and useful results. The article concludes by drawing some lessons that IES-Brasil can offer for climate policy and knowledge creation ‘post-Paris’.
