The voices of people who claim non-normative gender and sexual (NNGS) identities have long been silenced, unheard, or, at best, insufficiently heard when it comes to designing policies and actions geared towards adapting to climate change. NNGS groups gather people who do not identify within the heteronormative and/or Western woman-man binary. These groups include LGBTIQ+ minorities as well as non-Western gender identities such as Vaka sa lewa lewa in Fiji, Fa'fafine in Samoa, Waria in Indonesia, and Bakla in the Philippines.
Recent research has indicated that the members of diverse NNGS groups face unique challenges in dealing with climate change as well as other hazards. Therefore, this research underlines the objective to open up and facilitate a transcultural dialogue on CCA between people who claim NNGS identities and between NNGS groups and other stakeholders of CCA by conducting a series of three workshops.
