Des solution pour l’environnement

la population de l'Est du congo souffre suit leurs environnement elle prise en notage, depuis 1996 a nos jours , la guerre indeterminable de obus a goma au nord kivu ,a sange au sud kivu, l'securite regne patout ,or osodi de sa part milite pour la paix durable des nos population de la rdcongo, nos reaction de kampala, amani leo, concertation aboutissent toujours aux obus de goma pour la destruction de notre environnement .
Cependant, dans beaucoup de nos villages de la rdcongo , peu de gens maîtrisent les lois et tous les instruments juridiques qui protège l'Environnement, d'une part. D'autre part, les bonnes pratiques sont souvent ignorées tout simplement.
Pourquoi cela ? Quelles en sont les conséquences présentes et dans l'avenir ?
Quelque part, nous assistons à des partenaires qui interviennent dans la protection des écosystèmes forestiers, celle de la biodiversité, ou dans la lutte contre les changements climatiques, la lutte contre la pollution des eaux, atmosphérique ou terrestre, etc.. Plusieurs d'entre eux investissent dans des projets qui sont exécutés, avec ou sans impacts sur les communautés locales et riverains. Pourquoi les impacts ne sont pas très quantifiables ?
Nous suggérons ce qui suit :

-les femmes dans l'assainissement du milieu peut permettre aux familles, surtout aux enfants y compris toute la société à mener une vie saine. La femme, mère de l'humanité dispensera de bons conseils sur les bonnes pratiques à ses enfants. D'où, les acteurs sont priés d'appuyer toutes les initiatives féminines en matière de protection des ressource naturelles, de l'assainissement et lutte contre l'insalubrité, de reboisement et déforestation mais aussi en énergie renouvelable.
Nous estimons que les femmes réunies autour du maman shuja a bukavu et seuls des autres organisations féministes , des Femmes pour les changements climatiques se pencheront sur ces quelques recommandations en vue de la prise en compte du genre dans la protection de l'Environnement.

nous disons la paix la paix

The population of eastern Congo is suffering at the hands of their environment. Since 1996, it has been caught in a storm, in the interminable war of shells in Goma in North Kivu, in the bloodshed in South Kivu. There is insecurity all around, but Osodi is fighting for sustainable peace for the population of the DRC, with our reactions to Kampala, with Amani Leo, dialogue which always ends up in shelling in Goma which destroys our environment.

However, few people in Congolese villages are aware of the laws and legal tools which can be used to protect the environment, and good environmental habits are often completely ignored.

Why is this? What are the present and future consequences of this?

We support partners in many places who intervene in the protection of forest ecosystems and biodiversity, in the fight against climate change, the fight against water, air and earth pollution, etc. Many of them invest in projects which are carried out with or without impacting on the local and surrounding communities. Why is the impact of the projects not very easily quantifiable?

Our suggested solution:

- When women are involved in the protection of the environment, it can allow families – especially children – and society as a whole to lead healthy lives. Women, the mothers of humanity, pass on good environmental habits to their children. Therefore, environmental actors should support women’s ideas about protecting natural resources, sanitation, health, reforestation and deforestation, as well as renewable energy. We feel that women who come together as part of Maman Shujaa in Bukavu and individuals from other feminist organisations will take this advice in order to acknowledge the significance of gender in the protection of the environment.

Our motto is peace for peace,
On behalf of OSODI,

Merci

Merci pour votre contribution, votre message du pouvoir des femmes dans la protection de l’environnment est vraiment réconfortant. Est-ce que vous pouvez expliquer plus les liens entre le genre/les femmes et l’environnement ? Comment elles-sont touchées par les changements climatiques dans une manière plus profonde que les hommes ?

Respects,
Georgia
