Transforming Social Inequalities Through Inclusive Climate Action in Africa

Multi-dimensional poverty and inequality continue to persist in Africa’s societies.

The majority of African livelihoods rely on income from agricultural activities, which makes them vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. At the same time, the population on the continent is fast growing, which translates into rapid expansion of urban areas and associated infrastructural needs.

Practical and ideological changes in a post-pandemic world

It is clear nowadays that there are marked differences in the way climate and environmental changes and how their effects on health and their implications have been managed, both in terms of countries’ success in preserving the health of their citizens, and in the magnitude of inequalities. Unfortunately, no matter how bad climate and environmental changes were before the pandemic, and no matter how hard it exposed the inequalities in our society, the post-pandemic world may experience even greater climatic and environmental changes and inequalities.

Is the world still talking about climate change?

In Australia, despite the work of our world-leading scientists, climate change is a vexed political topic, rather than a question of science and policy. Join climate scientist and author of The Future Eaters and The Weather Makers, Tim Flannery, marine ecologist Adriana Vergés, social researcher, author of How to Talk About Climate Change in a Way That Makes a Difference, Rebecca Huntley and marine biologist and Dean of Science at UNSW Sydney, Emma Johnston to find out how we might turn these pressing climate conversations into climate solutions.

Nature based solutions

Nature based solutions look to protect our fragile ecosystems and meet the climate challenge simultaneously. The United Nations estimates that one-third of the Paris Agreement targets could be met through nature based solutions and could have the additional benefits of reducing poverty and improving food security in developing countries.

City life is heating up

Concrete jungles absorb and hold heat very differently to the natural environment and this will force city planners to consider how life in the city will need to adapt as climate change increases in intensity over time.

The life of a climate scientist

As the world becomes increasingly aware of climate change, the role of climate scientists has expanded from research expeditions in remote parts of the world, to educators, not only to future scientists but their local communities as well.
