Reversing the failures of climate governance: Radical action for climate justice

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapters

Abstract

Addressing climate change effectively will require focused attention on the most vital sources of failure in climate governance. Much, if not most, of that failure can be attributed to a lack of climate justice—a lack of ecological and environmental justice, a lack of social and distributive justice, and a lack of international and global justice. Demands for justice began decades ago. Had they been listened to and acted upon then, radical action would not be required now. To avert climate catastrophe, climate governance must embrace and implement all forms of climate justice. Copyright © 2021 Paul G. Harris, CC BY 4.0.
