Climate Justice & Sustainable Food

Areas of Impact

JENA will seek to achieve the following objectives under Climate Justice & Sustainable Food:

  • Improved awareness and understanding around local climate change vulnerabilities and impacts, and mechanisms to enable greater engagement with like-minded external actors to adapt to these vulnerabilities and impacts
  • Increased contribution to systemic changes with regard to national and international development policies and strategies that enhance community resilience to climate-related events and changes.
  • Increased understanding of the context of the communities under which the research is conducted.
  • Increased knowledge, skills, and competencies of local adaptation team members trained in planning and conducting survey research for collecting data necessary for establishing adaptation coalitions.
  • Increased understanding of the types and nature of the community capitals present in the community, including local vulnerabilities and impacts of climate change.
  • Increased availability of primary data and information from the communities and potential partners necessary for establishing adaptation coalitions.
  • Increased understanding of specific issues about vulnerabilities and impacts of climate change, and potential external actors to partner with in forming adaptation coalitions.
  • Increased understanding by the community members of specific climate change vulnerabilities and impacts affecting their well-being, and the potential community-based actions to address the problem(s).
  • Enhanced collaboration between external partners and the local community for joint planning and execution of adaptation coalition activities

Food Security, Justice
Small-Scale Fisheries

While global fisheries could contribute much more effectively and directly to fulfilling the human right to subsistence (an ethical norm that is as universal and binding as any under international law), their potential to do so is undermined by legal structures that favour the extractivist model and fail to legislate ethical norms.
