Just Transition: advancing climate goals and building livelihoods for all
Climate change, and often the responses to it, are unfair. People who are socially, economically, culturally, politically, institutionally or otherwise marginalised are especially vulnerable to climate change. Moreover, these communities cannot always access the benefits of climate action.
If addressing climate change does not meet the needs of city residents, mayors and governments risk losing permission to act.
