What is this?

Climate justice can be seen as an ethical imperative arising from the recognition that the disproportionate and synergic impacts of climate change predominantly burden the most disadvantaged populations and the global South – particularly low-income countries and communities, people of color, Indigenous peoples, rural women and girls, and many other populations. Through a gender-, race-, and class-sensitive lens, climate justice centers justice for those who suffer the most from environmental exploitation and understands the intersection between exploitation of human and ecological systems. It is not merely about fairer sharing of the burden of environmental problems, but about challenging long-standing systemic causes of environmental harm and remaking the structures and relationships of power that perpetuate disparities in resources and access.
