Communities in the Global South have long been struggling with the realities of climate change, and as a result, have been taking measures into their own hands. Local organizations from the Global South play a key role not just in raising awareness of the threats posed and the ongoing damage caused by climate change, but more importantly in proposing alternative rights-based solutions.
This advocacy toolkit was developed to address capacity development, advocacy and campaigning needs of grassroots and frontline communities struggling with the impacts of climate change. It is applicable for local organizations to use as a resource for building a structured approach for sustained advocacy and campaigning on climate justice issues. The tools described in this publication are particularly relevant to local organizations, but will also be valuable to anyone expanding their understanding of global climate governance, a rights-based approach to climate change response, and how this approach can be applied in practice.
