Nicaragua: Fairtrade, Hurricanes and Climate Justice

Host: Nicaragua Solidarity Campaign 

In November, two hurricanes of unprecedented strength struck Nicaragua, a consequence of the climate crisis. Small-scale producers such as those from SOPPEXCCA, suffered the consequences of climate extremes for which they are least responsible.
Join our webinar to find out about the impact of the hurricanes on the livelihoods of the producers, how trade justice through Fairtrade helped to mitigate the impact, and why trade and climate justice are inseparable.
