Abstract:

Flavio Comim argues that climate injustice is a pervasive feature of current climate change problems. Injustice is manifested in terms of cost–benefit asymmetries and in the erosion of individuals' capabilities. To understand the overall impact of climate change on poverty and human development, it is relevant to contextualize this discussion within the general issue about the impact of ecosystem services on human well-being. Moreover, it is important to qualify what we understand by ‘climate justice’ and use this characterization to think about policy directions for better responses. Comim examines the division between distributive and procedural justice, putting forward a capability reading of ‘climate justice’ that focuses on the integration of these two dimensions of justice.Development (2008) 51, 344–349. doi:10.1057/dev.2008.36
