Abstract

The concept of climate justice has emerged over several decades as a research agenda, an ethical and legal framework and most uniquely as the basis for an engaged grassroots response to the unfolding global climate crisis. Climate justice highlights the disproportionate impacts of climate changes on the most vulnerable and marginalised human populations, as well as the limitations of conventional political responses to rising climate instability.
