The CJF Pilot Programme

The CJF has teamed up with the Heinrich Boll Foundation (Germany) and has supported pilot activities in Kenya, Indonesia and regionally in Latin America. We have provided support for community empowerment for climate justice in Africa through our support to Natural Justice, who provides support to communities’ struggles against harmful infrastructure and mining projects (such as the Lamu coal plant). Our pilot initiative provided support to JPIC, a local based organisation in Central Kalimantan (Indonesia) supporting consultations and legal considerations to address the role of companies in relation to fires and haze, and through our support to establish a workplan on climate for the Inter-American Human Rights system.

Climate Change and Human Rights in Latin America

In 2019 the Climate Justice Fund, in collaboration with the Heinrich Boell Foundation, provided support to REDESCA to establish a workplan on climate for the Inter-American Human Rights system. This work establishes guidelines and standards that oblige states to uphold their human rights obligations in the face of the climate crisis. REDESCA now need your support to complete the final stages of this workplan, which will directly benefit human rights and environmental defenders, indigenous populations and first nations and civil society organisations.

Haze Justice in Indonesia

Through our pilot collaboration with locally based organisation, Justice, Peace and Integrity in Creation (JPIC) we have supported community consultations with haze impacted communities in Central Kalimantan and commenced work on a draft Petition to the Indonesian National Human Rights Commission (Komnas-HAM). Research known as the ‘Haze Majors’ has also been partially completed, which identifies more than 3,000 palm oil and pulpwood corporations, land use changes in concession areas under their control.
