At #Stockholm50, a huge diversity of voices called for concrete measures for a global #JustTransition, showing:

💪🏼how the climate movement is raising the bar of what real climate action looks like

🌍how the #FossilFuelTreaty campaign is gaining momentum…
1/ The #FossilFuelTreaty places the claims of the most affected communities and therefore those of the indigenous peoples at the heart of its strategy in order to tackle the root cause of the #climatecrisis. Otherwise, as Nemonte Neuquino says, what are we talking about?
2/ During our #Stockholm50 pre-summit, Anoshka Violeta Irey Cameno also reaffirmed indigenous peoples' commitment to protect their #Amazon territories and their vision of development.

Panorama des apports de la vaccination en #Océanie 🌺

1. En commençant par les coïncidences spectaculaires mais malheureusement mortelles, juste au moment où pratiquement 100% des adultes sont complètement vaccinés :
Aux #Samoa
2. Les #Tonga
~107k habitants, contre 202k pour les Samoa et une population très jeune dans les 2 (>30% de moins de 12 ans et <6% de 65+)
3. L'archipel de #Vanuatu est bien plus rétif à la vaccination.
On se demande bien ce qui pourrait expliquer ce faible engouement 🤨

-- Vaccinating the Pacific --

By @AlexandreDayant - projecting #Covid19 vaccination rates and timelines for 14 countries across the Pacific Islands region.
The research reveals a region divided. Countries in the Northern Pacific have benefitted from the United States' vaccine rollout, and small island nations have been quick to take advantage of supply to reach high coverage rates.
But countries in Melanesia are lagging behind, with #SolomonIslands, #Vanuatu and Papua New Guinea expected to reach less than 20 percent of their population by the end of 2022. #PNG is projected to reach only 35 percent coverage by 2026.
