A Just World for All
Just world Partnerships (JWP) work with local and regional partners throughout the Pacific Region, supporting coastal island communities that are at most risk from the social and ecological impacts of climate change. Our focus is at the grassroots ensuring a participatory approach that means the most vulnerable and marginalised groups in society are given a voice and have a lead in planning their future in a rapidly changing world.
By providing partnership and support to locally-based organisations, we help empower coastal communities to improve livelihoods, restore valuable marine resources and increase the access and sustainability of local food sources to reduce poverty and increase resilience at the level of the household.
At the heart of our work is the integration of community knowledge in to livelihood planning, community-led restoration and conservation strategies and the empowerment of minority and marginalised groups that are most at risk from the impacts of climate change, such as sea-level rise, loss of fisheries and coral bleaching.
Through various collaborations with major regional partners (see 'partners' section), JWP are reaching some of the most remote and vulnerable coastal communities within the South Pacific region. The current locations where we are supporting projects, both financially and logistically, are the Republic of Kiribati, Tuvalu, Viti Levu (Fiji) and Papua New Guinea. In each of these locations our projects are addressing climate adaptation, food security and poverty alleviation through conservation and community livelihood projects. In the near future, JWP will be expanding it’s support of regional partners in the Solomon Islands, Cook Islands and Samoa.
