Global Green New Deal

The world is in crisis. Climate catastrophe, unprecedented global inequality and the Covid-19 pandemic are ravaging the lives and lands of the world’s poorest and most marginalised communities.

Together with our partners and allies in the Global South, War on Want is campaigning for a Global Green New Deal to deliver climate justice, by reordering our economies to protect both people and the planet. We must uproot the systems of exploitation and oppression which keep the majority of the world’s population in poverty, while lining the pockets of corporates and rich shareholders; and ensure a just transition to clean energy, that protects both workers and the environment.

Association for Social Research and Action (Nomadesc), Colombia

In Colombia, more than five million people have been forced from their homes by violence and extreme poverty, made refugees in their own country. Rural Colombians have lost huge swathes of land. This humanitarian crisis and the needs of displaced people are well known in Colombia. The Social Research and Action Association (Asociacion para la investigacion y la accion social – Nomadesc) works to fix this massive disadvantage. By bringing these vulnerable groups together, Nomadesc unites and raises the voices of these communities. By strengthening the ties between the groups and giving them the tools to defend their human rights, communities are better able to protect themselves from violence and displacement. War on Want has supported Nomadesc in their work investigating violations of human rights and working to strengthen social movements through popular education initiatives.
