Inclusive Climate Action: An Emerging Perspective
The effects of climate change are growing more pronounced and increasingly threaten the well-being of society, regardless of geographic location. However, the burdens of climate change are not equally distributed. Communities that are especially vulnerable or underrepresented often suffer the most, and climate change impacts can exacerbate existing social inequalities. A growing demand to address the intersection of climate change and social inequality has led to the concept of inclusive climate action, which builds on historical movements such as sustainable development and environmental justice. This resource explores what inclusive climate action is, why it is important, where it is occurring, and how it can be achieved.
