Climate justice seeks to investigate and protect at-risk populations who are disproportionately affected by climate change. The concentration of people, assets and infrastructure mean that cities are vulnerable to climate justice inequities. Further, climate change is likely to exacerbate existing social vulnerabilities. This keynote session will discuss risks associated with urban climate challenges and multidisciplinary approaches to addressing urban climate justice.
