World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought

Her land. Her rights.

Droughts are among the greatest threats to sustainable development, especially in developing countries, but increasingly so in developed nations too. In fact, forecasts estimate that by 2050 droughts may affect over three-quarters of the world’s population. The number and duration of droughts has increased by 29 percent since 2000, as compared to the two previous decades (WMO 2021). When more than 2.3 billion people already face water stress, this is a huge problem.

Women hold a vital stake in the health of the land, yet they often don’t have control over it.¬†In all parts of the world, women face significant barriers in securing land rights, limiting their ability to thrive and prosper.¬†In many regions, they remain subject to discriminatory laws and practices that impede their right to inherit and access to services and resources.¬†And when land becomes degraded and water is scarce, women‚ÄĮare often the worst affected.

This year, the theme of the International Day Against Desertification, and Drought¬†“Her land. Her rights”, emphasizes that investing in women‚Äôs equal access to land and associated assets is a direct investment in their future and the future of humanity.‚ÄĮIt’s time for women and girls to be at the forefront of global land restoration and drought resilience efforts.

 

Did you know?

  • Today, nearly half of the global agricultural workforce is female ‚Äď yet less than one in five landholders worldwide are women.
  • Women‚Äôs rights to inherit their husband‚Äôs property continue to be denied in over 100 countries under customary, religious, or traditional laws and practices.
  • Globally, women already spend a collective 200 million hours every day collecting water. In some countries, a single trip to fetch water can take over an hour.

Protest Lockheed Martin @ Lockheed Martin
Jun 30 @ 12:00 PM ‚Äď 1:00 PM

Join Codepink and the Pacific Life Community and others for a one-hour vigil on the fourth Friday of every month to protest at the gates of the weapons-maker Lockheed-Martin facility in Sunnyvale.

Lockheed is the largest weapons manufacturer in the US and is the largest producer of nuclear weapons in the world.  It is also responsible for missiles that carry nuclear warheads, and Hellfire missiles which are shot from drones. We need a transformation of American priorities by divesting from hyper-militarism that is not making us safer, putting us deeper in debt and invest in the America people and spread peace and justice in the world.

Take Hwy 101 to Mathilda in Sunnyvale and turn right on Java to park on one of the side streets.  Meet at the Lockheed Martin gates on the corner of Mathilda and Java with banners, song, prayer and nonviolent action. Invite a friend or bring a family member to protest the military-industrial complex.
This a monthly vigil against nuclear weapons.  Every 4th Friday and every Friday during Advent and Lent
