ACT Now for Climate Justice 
ACT Alliance

“The world is facing a climate emergency, and the window of opportunity for decisive action to limit global warming, build resilience and the adaptive capacity of people and communities to climate induced changes and disasters, is closing fast.

Principles for effective communication and public engagement on climate change A Handbook for IPCC authors
Climate Outreach
“The work builds on the substantial body of knowledge and experience in climate science communication, particularly in the UK and other English- speaking countries – but the insights it contains are relevant for engaging communities in all regions of the world.”

 Climate Change in Africa: A Guidebook for Journalists
“Climate change poses a clear danger to lives and livelihoods across Africa. Journalists there have critical roles to play in explaining the cause and effects of climate change, in describing what countries and communities can do to adapt to the impacts ahead, and in reporting on what governments and companies do, or do not do, to respond to these threats.”

Guide to Diversity in Environmental Reporting
Society of Environmental Journalists
“The climate for environmental journalism is changing in more ways than one. Even as we work to tell the story of a natural and technological world in constant flux, we must also respond to a society that is seeing demographic shifts whose impacts we can never fully anticipate.”

Introduction to Gender and Climate Change
United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change
“Women’s unequal participation in decision-making processes and labour markets compound inequalities and often prevent women from fully contributing to climate-related planning, policy-making and implementation. Yet, women can (and do) play a critical role in response to climate change…”

Women, Gender Equality and Climate Change
UN Women Watch
“In many of these contexts, women are more vulnerable to the effects of climate change than men— primarily as they constitute the majority of the world’s poor and are more dependent for their livelihood on natural resources that are threatened by climate change. Furthermore, they face social, economic and political barriers that limit their coping capacity.”

The Climate Crisis Is Worse for Women. Here’s Why.
New York Times
“Although climate change is a collective problem, its burdens — displacement, homelessness, poverty, sexual violence, disease — weigh more heavily on women and girls.”

What Is Climate Feminism?
Natural Resources Defense Council
“The climate crisis disproportionately impacts women—and women of color in particular. This is why women must lead on its solutions.”

The impacts of climate change put almost every child at risk
Climate and environmental hazards are having devastating impacts on the well-being and future of children.

A right to participate: Securing children’s role in climate change adaptation
Children in a Changing Climate
“For children all over the world, climate change means the future is far from predictable. Although children in wealthy developed countries are affected, it is children in least developed countries that are most at risk. They are far more likely to be killed or be severely affected by disasters triggered by increasingly unpredictable and severe weather. They are in more danger of being drawn into conflict over scarce national and natural resources.”

Water and Climate Change
UN Water
Facts and figures, links and publications related to water and climate change. “Water is the primary medium through which we will feel the effects of climate change. Water availability is becoming less predictable in many places, and increased incidences of flooding threaten to destroy water points and sanitation facilities and contaminate water sources.”

Climate Justice for a Changing Planet: A Primer for Policymakers and NGOs
“This booklet considers how to move towards a climate justice agenda.

Chapter 2 examines four major gaps in equity that must be central topics for climate justice policy advocacy. Chapter 3 introduces possible policy directions.

The Anatomy of a Silent Crisis
Global Humanitarian Forum
“This report documents the full impact of climate change on human society worldwide today. It covers in specific detail the most critical areas of the global impact of climate change, namely on food, health, poverty, water, human displacement, and security. The third section of  this report highlights the massive socio-economic implications of those impacts, in particular, that the worst affected are the world’s poorest groups, who cannot be held responsible for the problem.”

Climate Justice: Equity and Justice Informing a New Climate Agreement
World Resources Institute / Mary Robinson Foundation
“This paper explores the role of equity in the climate negotiations. It establishes why climate change is an issue of injustice by examining the environmental challenges posed by climate change and links those challenges to socio-ecological and economic systems that undermine the rights of people, especially the poor, marginalized, and vulnerable.”

Position Paper: Human Rights and Climate Justice
Mary Robinson Foundation
“It is imperative that any action to address climate change should not further undermine human rights, but protect and respect them. This can be achieved with a climate justice approach: climate justice links human rights and development to achieve a human-centred approach, safeguarding the rights of the most vulnerable and sharing the burdens and benefits of climate change and its resolution equitably and fairly.”
