¿Qué es GCAP?

Llamado Mundial a la Acción Contra la Pobreza (GCAP) apoya al pueblo en sus luchas por la justicia y une a las personas y las organizaciones para desafiar a las instituciones y procesos que perpetúan la pobreza y las desigualdades en el mundo, para defender y promover los derechos humanos, la justicia de género, la justicia social y la seguridad necesarias para la dignidad y la paz de todo el mundo.


Puedes ver cómo lo hacemos visitando nuestra Agenda 2030 para el Desarrollo Sostenible y ver nuestra campaña actual llamada Rostros de la Desigualdad.

Historia

Una década de experiencia de campaña

En septiembre de 2003, la destacada activista en temas de mujeres y niños, Graça Machel, organizó un grupo de activistas del sur de la sociedad civil en Maputo, Mozambique. Fue aquí donde se manifestó por primera vez la idea de Llamado Mundial a la Acción Contra la Pobreza (GCAP). Lanzada en 2005 en el Foro Social Mundial de Porto Allegre con el símbolo de la banda blanca, GCAP ha movilizado a cientos de millones de personas y coorganizó la campaña más grande del mundo basada en temas individuales para ‘Stand Up’, es decir, levántate contra la pobreza – certificada por los Récords Mundiales de Guinness con 173 millones personas en 2009. GCAP desempeñó un papel clave en la creación de la agenda 2030 y los objetivos de desarrollo sostenible (ODS). Hemos organizado consultas comunitarias y nacionales en 39 países desde 2013. En 2015, movilizamos a 32 millones personas para que actúen contra la pobreza, la desigualdad y el cambio climático. GCAP ha insistido con éxito en la centralidad de abordar las desigualdades y garantizar la participación activa de las personas en la agenda 2030. El objetivo específico sobre las desigualdades, el ODS 10, es un resultado. El 25 de septiembre de 2017, GCAP inició en cooperación con la Campaña de Acción de las Naciones Unidas para los ODS el día mundial de acción – Act4SDGs para conmemorar el aniversario de los ODS. En 2018 millones de personas tomaron parte en 1662 acciones en 143 países. https://youtu.be/aRUgs2Wpcqc

Mandato y estrategia

Objetivo general: Construir una acción mundial fuerte y progresista contra la pobreza y las desigualdades con el liderazgo del Sur Global para garantizar que nadie se quede atrás. Objetivos específicos:

  1. Las personas – especialmente de los grupos marginados – son conscientes de sus derechos y están empoderados mediante, y en asociación, con las OSC locales y nacionales para formar parte de un proceso robusto, de abajo hacia arriba, guiado por la ciudadanía para hacer frente a los aspectos estructurales de las desigualdades y monitorear los ODS.
  2. Los gobiernos nacionales y de otro nivel y el sector privado rinden cuentas sobre sus responsabilidades en los aspectos estructurales de las desigualdades y la implementación de los ODS.
  3. Construir una red global fuerte desde las coaliciones nacionales, los grupos constituyentes, las iniciativas de incidencia y movilización a nivel regional y mundial para influir en los procesos e instituciones internacionales.
