A book by the Climate Observatory Working Group reflects on the subject based on interviews, reports and perceptions on the topic, with the active voice of those who have experienced multiple injustices

Who needs climate justice in Brazil? A direct question with several answers. This is what the book of the same name by the Working Group of Gender and Climate of the Climate Observatory presents, which has been published after one year and a half of production, research, interviews and illustrations. Coordinated by Andreia Coutinho Louback, who is also the executive producer, the publication reflects on the real meaning of the expression, in an attempt to pave the way for this conceptualization from intersectional perspectives.

“With a preface by Marina Silva, the presented reflections help us to understand the climate crisis as another axis of oppression that, when analyzed in the light of intersectionality, reveals that the impacts of climate change are even more accentuated for black, indigenous and quilombola women, from rural, fishing and seafood communities, and those from the peripheries and those living in favelas. They are, therefore, the focus of this publication. Environmental and climate factors reinforce already existing inequalities and create chasms of extreme marginalization for the women who form part of these intersections,” says a passage in the introduction of the book.
