Indigenous Peoples and Climate Change: A Call For Action to Build Resilience Post-COVID

From the health and economic impacts of COVID-19 to extreme weather events like the wildfires in Australia and the Amazon, 2020 severely tests the resilience of Indigenous Peoples across the globe. On the commemoration of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), we recognize that there is still much to be done to prevent, mitigate, and remedy the current and forthcoming adverse impacts of climate change to which Indigenous Peoples are particularly vulnerable.

COVID-19 and the Climate Crisis: Building Resilience with People at the Core

In what feels like the blink of an eye, COVID-19 has dislocated our daily lives, our economy, and the way we do business, with little visibility on when the crisis will be resolved. Our experience with this pandemic makes one thing very clear, however—we need to become more resilient, and people have to be at the core. Despite warning after warning of a potential pandemic, we weren’t ready for this public health crisis: governments, businesses, and people alike.

A 21st-Century Social Contract Must Include a Just Transition to a Net-Zero Economy

Drawn front and center and exacerbated by the many crises the world faces today—the COVID-19 pandemic, climate impacts, economic inequality, and the racial justice movement—it is clear that the current social contract is not fit for purpose. The ways in which institutions and individuals interact, including the way we do business, do not reflect reality, and they do not take into account the fundamental systemic inequalities, inequities, and discrimination that many across the globe face today. As Sharan Burrow, the General Secretary of the International Trade Union Confederation, wrote earlier this year: “The social contract is broken! Workers want a New Social Contract that delivers decent work for all.”
