"Nothing About Us Without Us, Towards Leaving No One Behind"

Environmental Justice

Indigenous communities, especially indigenous women, are known as the custodians of the land. All over the World, Indigenous People have been claiming their right to express their contribution and concerns on environmental justice.
As Indigenous Peoples, we possess the knowledge and skills needed to progress towards a sustainable world. The young indigenous generation needs to get involved in cultivating, preserving and sharing our traditional and customary practices and values.
In this regard, NIDWAN focus on researching, raising awareness and reporting locally and internationally on the impact of environmental justice on Indigenous Peoples with Disabilities. NIDWAN also collaborates with organizations on the front line of environmental justice. NIDWAN is advocating for the representation and participation of Indigenous Peoples and Indigenous Peoples with Disabilities in environmental justice negotiations.
