Key CJ-JT themes and injustices for filtering
The Climate Justice Map is a database in the form of a Wiki showing Climate Justice and Just Transition organisations and networks based in the Global South
Our unique mapping includes over 1,600 organisations and networks. It is in the form of a open-source Wiki platform with the core information available in four languages: Arabic, English, French and Spanish.
All the information contained in the Wiki has been filled out by drawing from the publicly available information online and the language which organisations use to describe themselves and their own focus area and operations. Each organisation featured has been given the opportunity to check their entry.
Climate justice champions are everywhere. We have tried to make sure every country and every region shows this. Our efforts were deliberately skewed to highlight the organisations and networks in the Global South. We have included a number of important Global North Allies based on information provided by the field.
We recognise the Climate Justice Map is a work in progress and we welcome your feedback and additional entries to make the Wiki more comprehensive.
READY TO USE THE
CLIMATE JUSTICE MAP?
the considerable number of organisations already working on CJ-JT in the Global South, highlighting wherever possible work led by women, people of colour, youth, historically marginalised groups, and those with disabilities based in the Global South as they have received the least resources from climate philanthropies
who want to increase their understanding and support for climate justice and just transition work
SUPPORT CIVIL SOCIETY
in understanding who is doing what and where the resources can be found
to free and up-to-date information for the field especially new comers
Climate justice (CJ) and just transition (JT) are frameworks for action rooted in social justice that shift power and resources to those on the front lines of climate change. These approaches can deliver bold, innovative, and effective climate solutions that protect the rights of local communities and drive the systemic change we all need to thrive.
The Climate Justice Map is led by the climate justice framing(s), understandings and needs of the field (rather than funders) and aims to increase understanding of who is doing what and where the toolkits and resources can be found.
It is being developed as an open-access Wiki intended to be as accessible and as comprehensive as possible showcasing up-to-date information of the field. As mappings by philanthropy are typically not shared with the field, we hope our Climate Justice Map can lead to a shift away from gatekeeping, secrecy and ad hoc funding by encouraging foundations and the field to access a shared resource and continuously support on-going work.
We know the mapping is just a start of a long and new journey to connect movements working on social, economic and environmental justice.
WHY WE DID IT
The mapping was produced because many studies showed philanthropic funding was not reaching those on the front lines of injustice, especially those based in the Global South.
The Climate Justice Map aims to redress this imbalance by helping foundations and advisors quickly find who is working on the ground and where.
Our aim is to build on the organisations and networks listed in the Climate Justice Map and to connect with a number of platforms that can make use of this resource as well as keep it as a live document that is open access.
We have partnered with Adeso, a humanitarian and development organization changing the way people think about and deliver aid.
We are currently working to integrate the Climate Justice Map / CJ-JT Wiki with Adeso’s Kujalink platform, which is a Global South-led match-making initiative connecting donors and Global South-based civil society initiatives. We are also exploring synergies with other complementary resources.
