One of the most challenging issue of our time is climate change, as the crisis become more evident, the concept of Climate Justice which is to address the disproportionate impacts of climate change on developing countries and indigenous communities especially when they contribute very little to the global greenhouse gas emissions. Climate justice address the need for a fair and equitable response to climate change taking into account the needs and rights of all people, particularly the most vulnerable.

Climate justice is recognizing the vulnerability of developing countries and indigenous communities experiencing the devastating effects of climate change firsthand and their inability to properly  respond to the climate crisis,  it involves developed countries supporting developing countries and indigenous communities in adapting to and mitigating climate change impacts, providing funding for sustainable development projects, technology transfer, capacity building, and resilience-building initiatives. The meaningful participation and inclusion of these countries and communities in decision-making processes, ensuring that their voices and knowledge are heard, respected, valued, and integrated into climate action plans while necessitating a global commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. 

Overall, climate justice is confronting the underlying economic, social, and political inequalities that exacerbate vulnerability to climate change and ensuring that actions taken to address climate change benefit all members of society in a fair and equitable manner. Climate justice is more than an environmental issue; it is a matter of social justice and human rights.

    Hello again Sandrine! This is your mentor James.

    This time, you've discussed about climate justice. The abnormal climate phenomena we face today are not necessarily every nation's equal "fault". Thus, establishing fair and equal international legislation is important to protect those who are less responsible or are in need for help.

    Thanks for the meaningful report! Keep up the good work.
