Advocating for the rights of women and children on the frontline of climate change.
The focus of Naza’s humanitarian work is to advocate for the rights of women and children in the developing world, who are uniquely vulnerable.
Many of the issues they face are deeply connected to other development challenges, such as the climate crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic.
The climate crisis will continue to exacerbate the inequalities prevalent across the world, and threaten the progress made in the development of women and children’s rights.
Women are the pillars of our community, but in many countries on the forefront of climate change, they have less access to basic human rights. Women and girls are particularly vulnerable to systemic violence and exploitation, and in times of crisis, these issues are amplified.
Naza is determined to fight for the empowerment and equality of women and girls.
Working towards a world where all women can learn, grow, thrive and contribute to the sustainable growth of their communities.
Everyone will be impacted by climate change, and so everyone deserves the right to be educated about its impact. This includes children, who are the future!
Naza believes we must educate vulnerable communities about the impacts of climate change, and how it will affect their livelihoods. We must ensure that resilience, mitigation and adaptation are part of that education.
In order to prevent unrest, it’s critical to address the social dimension of climate change.
Naza has outlined the need to ensure that the policies and measures under the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) design a just and fair transition for those whose livelihoods will be impacted by the move to a carbon-neutral world.
