ActionAid fights for more equitable redistribution of the world’s resources to achieve economic justice for women living in poverty and exclusion.
Around the world we are fighting for better and fairer public services, such as healthcare and education that will benefit everyone. We are campaigning against unfair policies which take money out of the public service and cut vital public service jobs. Read ActionAid’s recent report The Public Versus Austerity here.
ActionAid has been campaigning for tax justice since 2011 – having identified tax avoidance and harmful tax practices as a structural cause for poverty and a key inhibitor to the realisation of human rights.
Climate change exacerbates pre-existing gender inequalities. Women are the hardest hit when climate change threatens essential natural resources (like food and water supplies), and they are most at risk during climate disasters, yet have the least access to justice and reparations for the impacts that occur.
Over the coming months, we will be campaigning for a just, fair and green response to the climate crisis.
