|Description||Protecting forests and communities. Restoring ecosystems and food systems. Charting ambitious paths for responding to climate change rooted in social justice and agroecology. Urging action at the UN climate talks.|
|Objectives|| CLARA pursues climate solutions that work for people—at community, landscape, and national levels.
Securing land rights for indigenous peoples and local communities Strengthening core forest protections and ecosystem integrity Restoring degraded forests and ecosystems Agroecology and food sovereignty Our work is rooted in the latest science, in the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and the UN Convention on Biodiversity. We work with scientists, farmers and indigenous leaders to show the crucial role of local solutions for building community and ecosystem resilience in the face of climate change.
CLARA also fights back against false climate solutions, like monoculture tree plantations, geo-engineering, unjust carbon offset projects, and large-scale bioenergy/BECCS.
We believe dramatic changes in the corporate-dominated global food system—and changes in individual diet—are necessary for preventing dangerous climate change.
|Activities|| CLARA member organizations are leaders in the climate justice movement, in rainforest and temperate/boreal protection movements, and in land-rights and agroecological movements.
CLARA member organizations are also very involved in climate change science, ensuring proper accounting of greenhouse gas emissions.
