This November, world leaders are meeting in Glasgow for two weeks of global climate talks, at the 2021 UN Climate Summit (COP26). This is one of the last opportunities for world leaders to meaningfully commit to tackling the climate crisis, by making plans to transform our societies and economies. The decisions made will decide the fate of billions: who is to be sacrificed, who will escape, and who will make a profit.
Together with our partners and allies in the Global South, War on Want is campaigning – at the UN Climate Summit and beyond – 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.
