Welcome to another episode of Truth Be Told: A Caribbean Call to Action on Climate & Gender Justice.
Guest host Paula Joseph sat down with Dr. Angelique Nixon, Director of CAISO, a feminist LGBTQI+ civil society organization in Trinidad and Tobago, about the profound impact of climate change on gender justice in the Caribbean.
The Caribbean, known for its vibrant cultures and breathtaking landscapes, is facing a stark reality – the intersection of climate change and gender injustice. Dr. Nixon unveils the unequal impact of climate change, emphasizing that it exacerbates existing social inequalities, leaving women, LGBTQI+ communities, and marginalized individuals disproportionately vulnerable.
In this discussion, we delve into the complexities of the issue, exploring how gender roles, access to resources, and displacement contribute to this vulnerability. Dr. Nixon advocates for a resilient future, calling for intersectional policies, a focus on sexual and reproductive health, inclusive disaster preparedness, and intergenerational collaboration.
