Asia’s economic success has been paid for by poor women, who work long hours for poverty pay and do the majority of unpaid care work, according to a new report by Oxfam today.
This report launches a Global Call to Action on Indigenous and Community Land Rights, backed by more than 300 organizations all over the world. It is a manifesto of solidarity with the ongoing struggles of indigenous peoples and local communities seeking to secure their land rights once and for all.
The BRICSAMIT have come to be considered the economic powerhouses of recent decades. Not only have these countries managed to reduce poverty but today, all eight BRICSAMIT countries occupy the top ranks as some of the most unequal countries in the world.
