In brief: New Northern Triangle climate justice project launched

*A new project entitled ‘Aporto’ on civic space and climate justice in Central America’s Northern Triangle (comprising El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras) has been launched by Honduran non-profit Red de Desarrollo Sostenible Honduras (RDS-HN), the Guatemalan campus of the think tank Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales (Flacso), and Salvadorean civil society group Fundación Comunicándonos-El Salvador, with the technical and financial support of Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC), a government agency. According to RDS-HN, the project aims to establish a “solid base of scientific and practical evidence and knowledge to lead actions to defend the environment, land and territory” in the region, which IDRC notes is characterised by “high climate vulnerability, repressive or closed states, growing deterioration in human rights, hostility towards environmental resource defenders and widespread multidimensional fragility.” According to IDRC the project aims to “characterise the context, agency, strategies and capacities for action and advocacy of Indigenous and Afro-descendant communities”, and “facilitate knowledge exchange and intra- and extra-regional partnerships that promote inclusive and secure civic space for climate resilience in the region”, among other things.
