The impacts of climate change are intensifying. The range of impacts include sea-level rise, increased temperatures, changing precipitation patterns, and increased frequency of extreme weather events such as droughts or floods. For instance, the last eight years have seen the highest temperatures on record. The catastrophic effects of the climate crisis are most visible in the current state of global poverty, hunger, and displacement in the Global South.

Featuring case stories from four countries and one global region, this work provides a cross- cutting framework based on the protection and assertion of people’s rights in the face of the climate emergency, and outlines the support communities need for upscaling their practices and further capacity development. The stories also identified the systemic barriers to the development of people-powered climate actions, towards developing viable and genuine climate solutions as opposed to prevalent, market-based proposals.
