Zimbabwe is a mineral rich country. But the people who live in the mining area do not profit from it. At the contrary, the environmental degradation destroys their livelihoods. And the current El Niño phenomenon is causing a food security crisis, pushing people to migration. Mela Chiponda explains in this lecture why women are more effected by environmental degradation and climate injustice.
She and the NGO “Chiadzwa Community Development Trust (CCDT)” helps women to recover their livelihood, trees and land, and also helps redefining their role in society. Their goal: “Empower women with information, so they can reclaim their rights.”
