I’ve just come back from an inspiring week in Fiji where GCAP held the Asia-Pacific launch for the new Faces of Inequality campaign! This was done in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Bangkok Regional Hub and the Pacific Islands Association of Non-Governmental Organisations (PIANGO) during the 2017 International Civil Society Week. We were joined by some friends including former UNDP Administrator Helen Clark and Kumi Naidoo who graciously facilitated the very substantive discussions, as well as GCAP colleagues from Asia and the Pacific who discussed how policies, institutional and legal frameworks and many other constraints are impeding truly transformational change at the grassroots, sub-national and national levels. Millions across the globe live in poverty due unsustainable development that is driving the rising and untenable inequalities, man-made climate change and further exclusion of socially and economically marginalized communities. This discrimination and marginalization can be found everywhere. We must act to remedy the gaps now.
