2016 Education and action campaign

At the heart of the action for ECOLOGICAL JUSTICE

Development and Peace has been calling for ecological justice for the most vulnerable people of the world since 2011. Their struggles to live in dignity and to defend their land and the environment are at the heart of our campaigns.

Climate change is dramatically altering the planet as we know it. The poorest people contribute the least to climate change, yet are hit hardest by its impacts.

There are many ways to respond to climate change, and we believe that agriculture must be at the heart of the solutions.
