HONOUR SO DESERVING


“ Where is the future of young people if we don’t do anything? ”


PRISCILLA ACHAKPA - Interview with Vogue Magazine


Priscilla Achakpa is an environmental activist from Nigeria.  As executive director of the Women Environmental Programme, Achakpa has introduced thousands of women to sustainable solutions to everyday problems, such as waste-to-energy machines that can process rice husks. In Nigeria, Achakpa says, “The impact of climate change on women is huge. The men are forced to migrate and they leave the women, who are now the caregivers because they find they cannot leave the children .  We don’t want a top-down solution” to climate change, says Achakpa. “We want bottom-up. But we need to be at the table.”

Priscilla Achakpa’s interview with Democracy Now during COP 21, in Paris, France


“when it comes to the issues of negotiation, the African women are most of the times completely absent or nearly absent. And this is something that is very important for us, because we cannot be talking about negotiations that half of the populations are affected, which are the women. And then, the issues that are being discussed, they are completely being neglected, or they’re not even involved at all. For us, coming from the background of Africa, this is something that is very crucial for us, and it’s something that we want our leaders to really take on board and look at it very critically, because we cannot be discussing the issues that affect us without us being at the table to negotiate these issues.” African women hit hardest by climate change
