The Dialogue Box is now receiving submissions from researchers for its latest edition of Your Voice Magazine that is set to be published in the month of June this year. The theme for this edition will be Climate Justice and writers are requested to critically explore the Climate Justice Campaign. Authors are invited to submit short articles, poetries, photo essays, etc.
Why Climate Justice?
Climate Justice refers to the fair and equitable distribution of the burdens and benefits of climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts. It recognises that the impacts of climate change are not felt equally by all people, and that those who are least responsible for causing the problem are often the most vulnerable to its consequences.
The concept of climate justice emerged in response to the recognition that the global climate crisis is not only an environmental issue, but also a social justice issue. The effects of climate change, such as rising sea levels, droughts, and more frequent and intense natural disasters, disproportionately affect low-income communities, people of color, and Indigenous populations.
Climate justice also recognizes that some countries and communities have contributed more to climate change than others, and therefore have a greater responsibility to take action to address it. Developed countries, which have historically been the largest emitters of greenhouse gases, have a particular responsibility to take action to reduce their emissions and support climate mitigation and adaptation efforts in developing countries.
Climate justice therefore requires not only action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate the effects of climate change, but also efforts to ensure that the burdens and benefits of these efforts are distributed fairly and equitably. This includes measures to support vulnerable communities in adapting to the impacts of climate change, as well as policies to ensure that those who have contributed the most to climate change bear a greater responsibility for addressing it.
