This episode unpacks “The Rise of Disaster Capitalism: Climate change, COVID-19 and the Green New Deal”. The current gap in discourse between affected communities on the ground, governments, and multilateral organisations on the impacts of extreme weather events requires that national communities are visible in regional and international political and climate spaces and that their narratives are shared and voices are heard. Marginalised communities are systematically excluded from these spaces, so it is vital to promote their participation in creating, developing, implementing, and monitoring policy responses to and plans on climate change and disaster relief that support their needs. Most of these policy pronouncements do not yet directly address the issues through an inclusive and intersectional approach. Ensuring the inclusion and engagement of women, youth, and others representing marginalised communities in the conversations concerning climate policies and programs, as well as post-COVID recovery measures, is critical for protecting their rights, livelihoods, and critical ecosystems, and biological diversity. This episode is from the 2021 Global South Women’s Forum on Sustainable Development hosted by International Women’s Rights Action Watch Asia Pacific, a feminist organisation committed to the full realisation of women’s human rights through the pursuit of equality.
