Hace un año, gracias a una beca LEDE de la Red de Periodismo de Soluciones  (Solutions Journalism Network LEDE Fellowship) y en colaboración con el Land Portal, inicié un proyecto para encontrar historias de respuestas a los daños causados a la tierra y el medio ambiente.  Durante este tiempo, afirmé que comunidades y personas de todo el mundo trabajan para proteger y sanar el medio ambiente, aunque esas historias apenas lleguen a los principales medios de comunicación.

During this time, I affirmed that communities and people around the world are working to protect and heal the environment, even if those stories hardly make it to the mainstream media.

Like many countries, Mongolia has been hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic and its government has been accelerating investments in the mining sector to help the economy. However, this has led to protests by local communities concerned about their land rights, and about their health. Among them is the community of Dalanjargalan, where the WOLTS project has been working with local champions who have been trained in land law, gender issues and participatory decision-making.

C'est à nouveau la période de l'année ! Mars est synonyme de journée internationale de la femme et de réunion annuelle de la Commission des Nations unies sur le statut de la femme. Il n'est pas surprenant, après la COP26 à Glasgow, que la CSW66 de cette année lie l'égalité des sexes au changement climatique. Le thème officiel est "la réalisation de l'égalité des sexes et l'autonomisation de toutes les femmes et les filles dans le contexte du changement climatique, de l'environnement et des politiques et programmes de réduction des risques de catastrophe".

The official theme is ‘achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls in the context of climate change, environmental and disaster risk reduction policies and programmes.’
