Launch | Right to Say NO Information Pack

Communities across Africa are organising to STOP large destructive extractive activities. They are saying NO to mega hydro dams, industrial food plantations and large-scale fishing, fossil fuel extraction, false technology solutions to climate change (such as Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD) or carbon capture in soil), and infrastructure, such as roads, rail, pipelines, and ports. In many resistances women play a central role because they have most to lose.

Ecofeminist Alternatives To Development

WoMin’s programme on Advancing African Ecofeminist Development Alternatives (AAEDA) is supporting the construction of African development alternatives to destructive extractivism that are ecofeminist, post-extractivist and transformative.
