Campello Torres P.H., Jacobi P.R. (2021) Introduction: Community Practices and Climate Justice—A Global South Perspective in the Face of Climate Emergency. In: Campello Torres P.H., Jacobi P.R. (eds) Towards a just climate change resilience. Palgrave Studies in Climate Resilient Societies. Palgrave Macmillan, Cham.

Abstract

This book provides an accessible overview of how efforts to combat climate change and social inequalities should be tackled simultaneously. In the context of the climate emergency, the impacts of extreme events can already be felt around the world. The book centres on five case studies from the Global South, Latin America, Pacific Islands, Africa, and Asia with each one focused on climate justice, resilience, and community responses towards a just transition. The book will be an invaluable reference for advanced undergraduates and postgraduate students, researchers, policymakers, and practitioners in environmental studies, urban planning, geography, social science, international development, and disciplines that focus on the social dimensions of climate change.
