The AACJ programme will be implemented in eight African countries : Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Kenya, Nigeria, Mozambique, Senegal, Somalia and South Africa. The AACJ consortium believes that building strong and inclusive movements for climate justice in these countries can be the engine for a powerful pan-African movement for climate justice. For the AACJ consortium, climate justice means all people have the right to live a decent and dignified life in a healthy environment. We believe that curbing climate change and enabling all people to build resilience and recover from climate-related shocks is key to break the vicious cycle of inequality and vulnerability. The impacts of climate change are not being borne equally or fairly, between rich and poor, women and men, and older and younger generations. The voices of frontline communities who both offer solutions to protect our climate and face the harshest consequences of the immediate impacts of climate change, are excluded from the policy debates shaping their futures. Their voices are often also isolated as opposed to aligned and lack the capacity to come together in unified front calling for action. The goal of our programme is to amplify and unite the voices in Africa demanding that women, youth and local and indigenous communities in the 8 target countries can defend and realize their human rights and live a decent and dignified life in a healthy and sustainable environment, within the context of the climate emergency. We will not only respond to power asymmetries within countries, but also challenge asymmetries of power between countries.

To promote climate justice through inclusive human-rights and gender-responsive approaches that strengthen civil society and communities’ ability to claim their rights and influence climate relevant policies and decision-making processes. The programme will contribute to the following impact Impact areas : Outcome Impact Outcome 1 : Kenyan CSOs and movements working on climate justice are mobilized to build a strong alliance that seeks to strengthen and disseminate the climate justice narrative and support indigenous people and local communities to access and defend their environmental rights.
