Date: 25th October 2022
Time: 17.30 - 19.00 (UK time)
At this event, speakers will share insights from their research around climate change and inequality.
The discussion will focus on the existing research - and lack thereof - around the impacts which climate change has on vulnerable people, the inequality that exists within access to systems to address climate change, and practical ways to research the impact of climate change in a way that drives effective policy-making.
Speakers have expertise in considering these questions in relation to various areas, including climate change and racial justice, climate migration, and policy engagement around the effects of climate change in informal settlement communities in Cape Town, South Africa.
