Additionally, the partners will also identify one or more local communities to work with throughout the sub-grant period that are implementing solutions around the areas as listed below:

  • Agroecological farming practices that deliver multiple co-benefits, from retaining bio-diversity and limiting the utilisation of chemical fertilisers, to enabling food sovereignty, increasing the ability to store carbon in the soil and improving food quality and health benefits.
  • Energy and resource democracy, where local people, particularly women, are allowed to make decisions over the use of local resources and the best way to fulfil their needs.
  • Investment in commons – public housing, public transports, community green spaces and seed banks designed to deliver both climate and gender impacts
  • Just and equitable transition that implies a shift from jobs in carbon polluting industries to green and decent jobs in sustainable, clean and renewable industries.
