UN Trans Advocacy Week 2019

Climate Action, Best Practices and Lessons Learned

In this statement, trans and gender-diverse human rights defenders participating in this year’s Trans Advocacy Week called on member States to accept the impact that climate change has as a form of gender based violence that is legitimised by States, exploited by corporations for profit, and will result in the catastrophic decimation of the most marginalised populations including LGBTIQ persons that do not have the resources to survive.
