  • Farming for a Small Planet: Agroecology Now
    • Authors: Frances Moore Lappé
      Abstract: Abstract The primary obstacle to sustainable food security is an economic model and thought system, embodied in industrial agriculture, that views life in disassociated parts, obscuring the destructive impact this approach has on humans, natural resources, and the environment. Industrial agriculture is characterized by waste, pollution, and inefficiency, and is a significant contributor to climate change. Within so-called free market economics, enterprise is driven by the central goal of bringing the highest return to existing wealth. This logic leads inexorably to the concentration of wealth and power, making hunger and ecosystem disruption inevitable. The industrial system does not and cannot meet our food needs. An alternative, relational approach—agroecology—is emerging and has already shown promising success on the ground. By dispersing power and building on farmers’ own knowledge, it offers a viable path to healthy, accessible food; environmental protection; and enhanced human dignity.

  • The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: Bringing Climate Justice to
           Climate Action
    • Authors: Gabriel Ferrero y de Loma-Osorio
      Abstract: Abstract The Paris Agreement on Climate Change represents a historical step forward to curb global climate change. However, the Paris Agreement is a necessary but insufficient instrument to advance Climate Justice. In this article we discuss why, and how, the 2030 Agenda—and the Sustainable Development Goals—is the indispensable and complementary framework to deliver on Climate Justice, together with the Paris Agreement.

  • Mapping Climate in the Twenty-First Century
    • Authors: Julia M. Puaschunder
      Abstract: Abstract Climate justice accounts for the most challenging global governance goal. In the current climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts, high and low-income households but also developed and developing countries as well as various overlapping generations are affected differently. This article maps international climate change mitigation and adaptation regimes in order to derive fair climate stability implementation strategies. Based on insights on the current endeavor to finance climate change mitigation and adaptation around the globe, a 3-dimensional climate justice approach will be introduced to share the burden of climate change fairly within society. First, climate justice within a country should pay tribute to the fact that low- and high-income households share the same burden proportional to their dispensable income, for instance enabled through a progressive carbon taxation. Those who caused climate change could be regulated to bear a higher cost through carbon tax in combination with retroactive billing through inheritance tax. Secondly, fair climate change burden sharing between countries comprises of argumentations that those countries benefiting more from a stable climate, hence those with a larger landscape or higher population, who have more access to climate than others, should also bear a higher burden of climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts. Countries that reap benefit from a warming earth should be obliged to finance international aid for those who are impacted negatively by climate change, e.g., climate refugees. In addition, building on case and international law, those countries that have better means of protection or conservation of the common climate should also face a greater responsibility to protect the earth. Thirdly, climate justice over time is proposed in an innovative climate change burden sharing strategy. Innovative compensation schemes to share the burden of climate change with bonds help weight the burden of climate change more equally between today’s and tomorrow’s society. A climate tax-and-bonds mix could subsidize the current world industry for transitioning to green solutions and future generations, who will enjoy a less carbon intensive industry and more stable climate but should repay those bonds. Thereby the current generation is advised to mitigate climate change financed through bonds to remain financially as well off as without mitigation while improving environmental well-being of future generations. This respective intergenerational tax-and-transfer policy-mix could turn climate change mitigation into a Pareto-improving strategy. All these efforts should alleviate the contemporary global governance predicament that seems to pit today’s generation against future world inhabitants in a trade-off of economic growth versus sustainability. Deriving respective policy recommendations for the wider climate change community is aimed at ensuring to share the burden but also the benefits of climate change within society, between countries and over time in an equitable and fair way.

  • Reflecting on the South African Long-Term Mitigation Scenario Process a
           Decade Later
    • Authors: Emily Tyler; Marta Torres Gunfaus
      Abstract: Abstract The 2006–2007 Long Term Mitigation Scenario planning process (LTMS) was a seminal South African climate mitigation policy initiative that continues to underpin the country’s climate mitigation policy today. Whilst acknowledging the LTMS’s significant contributions, the article explores how the particular conceptualization of the policy problem under the LTMS as linear, sectoral, technical and environmental might be contributing to inadequate progress on implementation a decade on. Additional constraining factors are identified as being a lack of attention to policy process after the LTMS, and a lack of engagement with the political economy realities of climate mitigation in South Africa.

  • Hydro-Politics of the Nile: The Role of South Sudan
    • Authors: Ibrahim Farah; Valentine Opanga
      Abstract: Abstract In an ideal world, water is supposed to be uniformly distributed and easily accessed by each and every state. In reality however, and especially in Africa, there is a challenge in water-sharing because of the increasing demand resulting from rapid population growth. The River Nile is a shared natural resource and its waters are neither evenly distributed nor effectively managed. As such, conflicts are bound to occur amongst the involved riparian states. Before the independence of South Sudan, the Nile River had ten riparian states; making South Sudan, which is a middle stream state, the 11th Riparian state. At the moment, the Nile is governed by treaties signed in 1929 and 1959 and, while other riparian states have continued to experience numerous misunderstandings, the recent independence of South Sudan has compounded existing conflicts amongst the Nile riparian states. This leads to the questions: What is the status of hydro-politics in the Nile Basin region' What role can South Sudan, as a middle stream state, play in order to bring all other riparian states to the table so that they can negotiate a lasting solution to the Nile Basin conflict and create peace in this volatile region'

  • A Kenyan Youth Perspective on Climate Change
    • Authors: Alphaxard Gitau Ndungu
      Abstract: Abstract The article investigates the effects of climate change on agriculture in Kenya. It further acknowledges efforts that have been made to address the issues of climate change in Kenya taking into account existing international frameworks. This includes policies that have been passed at the national and county level that support addressing the issues of climate change. Through scanning the opportunities that come with climate change, the article recommends strengthening youth engagements in addressing the effects of climate change through innovations and by further creating an enabling environment. It also recommends the need to harness the energy and ideas within young people and finally, the article calls for the government to support the establishment of sustainable partnerships that support actions from the youth towards addressing effects of climate change.

  • Running in Quicksand: Environmental Change, Migration, and the Policy
           Imperatives
    • Authors: Kelly M. McFarland
      Abstract: Abstract Environmental change increasingly effects internal and external patterns of human movement around the globe. Whether due to loss of livelihood from rising sea waters, degradation of arable land, or increased frequency and severity of storms, people are on the move. This article looks at environmental factors driving this new wave of migrants and provides a set of ‘guiding principles’ for policymakers, international institutions, NGOs, academia, and the think tank community to create new policies, and the obstacles they may face in implementation.

  • Sustainability and Well-Being: A Happy Synergy
    • Authors: Christopher Barrington-Leigh
      Abstract: Abstract The new science of ‘happiness’ is revolutionizing our ability to measure social progress. Factors such as meaningful relationships and a sense of purpose and belonging have been shown to be essential to human well-being; indeed, they contribute even more than income. The happiest societies foster dignity for all, in part through robust investment in public goods and a holistic approach to education. This converging body of research indicates that well-being and ecological sustainability, goals sometimes viewed as contradictory, are in fact complementary. Emphasizing social drivers of well-being counters the conventional focus on economic growth and fosters the pro-social attitudes and behaviors necessary to live in better balance with nature. Fortuitously, recent technological innovations that make knowledge and productive capacity widely available at little cost and promote creative and collaborative activity could facilitate a transition to a world of reduced environmental stress and enhanced human well-being. An affirmative vision of a future both resilient and fulfilling, rather one of dour work and sacrifice, should guide our way.

  • Are International Non-Governmental Development Organizations Fuelling a
           ‘Conspiracy of Silence’ Around Climate Injustice'
    • Authors: Lorna Gold
      Abstract: Abstract This article reflects on my experience over the last decade working with International Non-Governmental Development Organizations (INGDOs) on advocacy and action related to climate justice. After presenting a brief summary of the current climate science and failing regulatory regime, with the consequences predicted for developing countries, I then go on to assess how INGDOs are currently responding. The assessment here is that on the whole, with a few notable exceptions, most INGDOs are not giving climate justice the level of urgency it requires, particularly in their public communications. Based on the scientific evidence relating to the multiple impacts of climate change on human development, I ask why it is that INGDOs are still not prioritizing this' I argue that by ignoring climate change in their public communications and outreach, INGDOs may be contributing to a conspiracy of silence which still surrounds climate change in Western societies. I end by suggesting some priority actions which INGDOs might consider in responding to the pressing challenge of climate justice.

  • Interconnection of Climate Change, Agriculture and Climate Justice:
           Complexities for Feeding the World Under Changing Climate
    • Authors: Deepak Ghimire; Dinesh Panday
      Abstract: Abstract Agriculture, among the several sectors affected, is a crucial sector in terms of both cause for and consequence of climate change. Small-holder and peasant farmers who are only responsible for a minor contribution to climate change are facing the brunt of its multiplying impacts. Such inequality in terms of contributions and impacts has led to the need and movement for climate justice. With an increasing concern on the equitable sharing of burdens and benefits of climate change, climate justice movements are at the center of global agendas and negotiations. Ensuring climate justice is a must to safeguard the rights of the vulnerable farmers and communities and can be achieved through conscientious actions of developed countries.

  • New Times for Women and Gender Issues in Biodiversity Conservation and
           Climate Justice
    • Authors: Isis Alvarez; Simone Lovera
      Abstract: Abstract Despite early recognition of women’s vital role in biodiversity conservation and increased resilience to climate change at the international policy level, only recently the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biodiversity has taken some concrete steps to mainstream gender in different biodiversity policies. It is expected that this increased recognition will lead to new policy approaches to enhance women’s participation in tackling biodiversity loss and climate change. Such approaches can contribute to climate justice by supporting financial and other forms of support to community-driven, ecosystem-based climate change mitigation and resilience initiatives that foster women’s rights, needs, roles and aspirations.

  • Peasant Farming, a Refuge in Times of Crises
    • Authors: Angela Hilmi; Sara Burbi
      Abstract: Abstract This article considers a phenomenon seldom analyzed: The return to the roots, to family and friends, to the home village, when hardship hits. It looks into the role of peasant farming as a refuge, for those whose livelihoods have deteriorated, usually due to economic and financial crises for which they have no responsibility and even less say. Listening to the testimonies of those who go back to the countryside, or those returning to the sea (with examples in Greece, Spain, Portugal and Iceland), one hears a mix of struggle and hope, loneliness and fear, success and fulfilment. A destiny not always chosen, an imposed tabula rasa. These movements usually go unnoticed, but some governments provide the means to facilitate them, understanding the potential they hold for the country’s wealth. A few examples are chosen here to inspire policymakers and provide insights into how to revive national economies, particularly in times of financial and economic hardship. These examples also lead us to reconsider our perspectives on the gap between the rural and the urban, and invite us to see what we may consider as a continuum of mutually reinforcing synergies.
