At #ClimateJustice panel at #CountdowntoCOP there is recognition that the UK govt has taken on the discourse, but we wait to see the action. Across audience a recognition on the need to centre climate justice in #COP26 & beyond. I am looking forward to hear reflections on #gender
@HarpreetKPaul, an expert on #lossanddamage shares concerns about the lack of movement on the #WIM at a time where #disasters are leaving countries & communities in the global south increasingly & unfairly indebted. We have a moral imperative - #MichaelGove said it himself today
Nick Robins @GRI_LSE & from finance sector explains there is now broad agreement in sector that #ClimateJustice is the right thing to do, AND the necessary thing. #justtransitions must be led by all industries, communities&citizens. Place-based dimension is v.important even in UK
. @tessakhan (Climate Litigation Network) calls on us to NOT reproduce historic inequalities in climate action. #Indigenous ppl- that we should be grateful to for protecting critical areas for earth resilience- continue to be displaced &dispossessed. #rights & agency are critical
The panel discusses whether urgency on #climateaction or #justice are more important. @tessakhan emphasises that action that is unjust is ultimately unsustainable. Who are we acting for if not those on the front lines?
@pepper_jess (Stop Climate Chaos) asks for clarity on the process of collaboration btwn governments in Edinburgh & London. How will leaders ensure #Cop26 is genuinely inclusive? No doubt commitment from @NicolaSturgeon but need political space for braver & bolder decisions
@tessakhan responds to a question from audience on the climate & #health link to motivate #ClimateJustice actions. She notes the #right to health is very powerful in legal settings & we should bring the risks & impacts to health forward to ensure accountability & #justransitions
