Debates on climate justice often involve competing discourses of justice among social actors across governance scales. Drawing on ethnographic research on tree planting schemes in Thailand, Witchuda Srang-iam argues that perceived inequalities and justice at the local level could sustain oppression and injustice on a global scale. She calls for a situated theory of justice and a bottom-up approach to redress climate-related inequalities between and among affluent polluters and poor victims.
