  • This session focuses on emerging justice-based pathway for climate resilient transformations in cities. The papers in this session evaluate this ‘reorientation’ towards justice, which includes an understanding of how vulnerable communities can participate in climate change decision-making, how adaptation interventions can yield more equitable benefits, and how future visions of climate resilient development can prioritise the needs of economically precarious, environmentally vulnerable, and politically marginalised communities. A secondary objective of the session is to understand how local approaches to justice can serve as guides or exemplars for other cities that are embarking on alternative pathways towards climate resilience.
