AOSIS Islands On Alert – Episode 5: A Case For Climate Justice
- Climate Change
#SIDS have historically contributed the least to #ClimateChange but are on the frontlines of its worst impacts. #GHG emissions have no borders. Who will pay for impacts beyond our adaptive capacity?
Over 10 years ago, it was agreed that developed economies would mobilize $100 billion per year in #ClimateFinance by 2020, for both #adaptation and #mitigation. This commitment is yet to be met.
Can large emitter countries or companies be held legally liable? What does restorative #ClimateJustice actually look like and how do we pursue it?
