Climate Justice Scoping Study

This study, commissioned by the International Development Research Centre, identified gaps and future entry points for Southern-led research on climate justice.

The study was framed around the concept of transformative climate justice, reflecting the need to bridge gaps between climate justice processes (under the UNFCCC) while addressing unjust and inequitable structures that put some social groups at a disadvantage over others.

The study findings  argue that there is significant scope and need to develop and realise Southern-led research on all aspects of climate justice: its procedural, distributive and intergenerational dimensions and across policy domains, from energy and food to water and conflict.
