Abstract

This special issue of the International Journal of Climate Change Strategies and Management focuses on the issue of climate justice - a new narrative informing development and climate policy. Our changing climate presents significant challenges and threats to people, society, the environment and our ecosystems. According to the IPCC Climate Change Report 2014 (IPCC 2014) the influence of anthropogenic activity on the climate system is clear as a result of greenhouse gas emissions being the highest in history. Projected changes in the climate system are likely to be ...”that heat waves will occur more often and last longer, and that extreme precipitation events will become more intense and frequent in many regions. The ocean will continue to warm and acidify, and global mean sea level to rise”. The onslaught of these predicted changes by the IPCC will present themselves in many ways but most significantly from food and nutrition insecurity and the right to a decent quality of life from lack of clean drinking water, clean source of energy and safe shelter. As a result this may exacerbate the migration of people, poverty and deepening gender inequality which is likely to be felt most by the poorest and most
