Climate change is arguably the most critical and complex challenge that the world is facing in the 21st century. Its impacts often hit the world’s poorest first, threatening human development efforts that have been made so far. Collective global action to combat climate change is urgently needed. Yet, efforts of climate change governance are often hampered through discussions on unequal impacts and burdens.
In this debate series, we explore the link between development and climate change, discuss current recent advances and obstacles in climate change action and assess the role and responsibilities of science, politics, business and society therein.
