What an appropriate day to hear from Mary Robinson at #IBARome on #climatechange #climatejustice the day after this landmark Dutch decision puts “all world governments on notice” on #climatechange

theguardian.com/environment/20…
Robinson: Gender dimensions of #climatechange are becoming very important. Women & children suffer disproportionately, including during natural disasters. #IBARome
We are on course for catastrophic change in people’s lifetimes if we haven’t reduced our emissions globally by 2030. We need to be scared & realise we have a window but we have to completely change course: Robinson #IBARome

#IBARome@IntlCrimCourt⁩ Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda says emphatically that pushback by the American govt, & other states, will not deter the ICC from doing its work without fear or favour. #CrimesAgainstHumanity #genocide
ICC can be faced with total non-cooperation, dwindling resources, hostility etc. Forms part of challenge to conducting investigations. We need to anticipate such challenges. US isn’t 1st state to refuse to cooperate with ICC, eg Sudan, but we still collected evidence: Bensouda.
Since I announced investigation into Philippines. I’m sure you’ve heard response of leader, including threats against Prosecutor. But, eg, see Burundi where I opened prelim invest. Burundi immediately withdrew, but we ctd investigation & obtained satisfactory evidence- Bensouda.
