Climate Justice and Mitigation

Climate change is a complex and multifaceted issue that affects every aspect of our lives. The impacts of climate change are felt disproportionately across different regions, communities, and socio-economic groups. This is where the concept of climate justice comes into play. Climate justice recognizes that those who are least responsible for causing climate change are often the most vulnerable to its impacts. In this blog, we will explore the link between climate justice and mitigation, and why it is essential to address both to tackle climate change effectively.

What is climate justice?

Climate justice refers to the fair and equitable distribution of the benefits and burdens of climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts. It recognizes that certain communities and individuals are disproportionately affected by climate due to factors such as location, income, race, and gender. Climate justice aims to address these inequities and ensure that those who are most affected by climate change have a voice in shaping policy decisions.
