Fairtrade and Climate Justice - Choose the World You Want
This year's Fairtrade fortnight begins at the end of February and focuses on the theme of Climate Change and the catastrophic effect it is having on producers in the Global South.
Centuries of exploitation of people and planet by the world’s wealthiest have caused the climate crisis. 50 percent of global emissions are the responsibility of the highest-earning 10 percent of people. But it’s the communities already facing extreme hardship due to unfair trade who are feeling the worst effects of climate change: increasingly extreme weather, more frequent plant disease and more insecure food supplies. Wealthier nations like the UK are responsible for the global systems that have caused the unfair climate crisis.
If we do nothing, foods such as coffee, bananas and chocolate could soon be much more difficult to buy. Climate change is making crops like these harder and harder to grow.
