OXFAM, PACJA, AYICC, ONE & Others Partner On #WomenFoodClimate

South Africa – 12th June 2015 - OXFAM, PACJA, ONE Campaign, CAN International, The African Youth Initiative on Climate Change (AYICC) among others are partnering to champion an Africa-wide campaign engaging organizations from across the continent. It targets the issue of climate change affecting our ability to get enough to eat.

Climate change is the single biggest threat to fighting hunger. For many of us, it means lower quality food, less choice, and higher food prices. For women food producers, it means investing their labour, time and money in vain. It means dragging thousands into poverty and could set back the fight against hunger by several decades. 

This year, African governments are prioritizing women’s empowerment. At the same time, at the Paris climate talks in December governments will determine the fate of Africa and future generations. Governments have the power to take bold action to fix the damage that’s already been done. Demand action now for our children and future generations.

Sign the petition: African Leaders Must Act on Women Food Climate
Please visit www.womenfoodclimate.org for more information and do sign the petition calling on African Leaders to Take Actions. 

The campaign is focused on strengthening women food producers and achieving resilience in communities to the effects of climate change. 

Do not hesitate to contact me via (hamzy@ayicc.net), Rehema (rehemakimulu22@gmail.com) and Yeabsira (ybsrawork@gmail.com) for more information on the campaign.
