Climate Justice

Public E-team



This e-team is concerned with discussing the issue of Climate Justice. This is a fully collaborative space.

You – the members of the e-team – were invited to join due to your expertise and/or expressed interest in this field.

Climate change is a pressing global concern across nations and sectors, but the burden of the consequences is borne unequally.  Climate Justice is concerned with understanding and addressing such impacts of inequality via research, policies and practical other means.

Some of the issues you are invited to discuss are:

· What are some of the most pressing challenges in affording climate justice?

· How do socio-economic inequalities intersect with the effects of climate change?

· How are marginalized groups, such as women, children or other communities at a particular disadvantage and how are they affected by existing practices and policies?

· The IPCC report, “Global Warming of 1.5°C” states that limiting global warming to 1.5°C instead of 2°C could lead to a more sustainable outcome. How and to what extent would this be beneficial to ensure reductions in inequalities and a more equitable society? How, and among which actors, should the responsibility for the same be distributed?

Members are welcomed to react to any of these discussion threads (see discussion section of the e-team) and/or initiate any new thread on issues relating to this topic.

Our co-moderator for this e-team is Professor Tahseen Jafry, director at the Centre for Climate Justice, Glasgow Caledonian University. Her research interests include the justice and equity aspects of climate change, gender and poverty targeting, and the management of natural resources.
