Climate Colonialism and Climate Justice: the Case of Western Sahara

This session will explore how climate action is used by Morocco to entrench its illegal occupation and bolster its green credentials, and how the Sahrawi people are systematically excluded from international climate finance and governance mechanisms, increasing their vulnerability and inhibiting their ability to adapt. It will examine the Sahrawi vision for climate action, and the centrality of self-determination for tackling climate injustice.
