Clear-eyed equity: Setting a climate equity and justice research agenda
German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE)
Issues of equity and justice are central to the analysis and design of climate policies and the practice of climate politics at all levels. A broadening range of scholars and practitioners have engaged with these issues, but a strong epistemic community has yet to emerge. You are hereby cordially invited to participate in a one-day workshop and in a broader process of articulating research agendas focused on climate and equity to build that community.
The workshop was jointly facilitated by Arizona State University (ASU), the Climate & Development Lab (CDL) at Brown University, and the Klimalog project of the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE).
This one-day workshop convened at the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE), i.e. in easy walking from the UNFCCC's Bonn Climate Change Conference (8-18 May 2017).
There was a call for one-page briefs that would propose a research agenda or research question focused on climate equity or justice at any level. These briefs were used to further shape the workshop content and structure.
Keynotes speakers included Sonja Klinsky (Arizona State University), Timmons Roberts (Brown University) and Joyeeta Gupta (University of Amsterdam).
