Report: Zero Carbon, Zero Poverty - The Climate Justice Way

The Mary Robinson Foundation for Climate Justice has released a new report titled "Zero Poverty, Zero Carbon - The Climate Justice Way" which explores the challenges we face in moving towards a goal of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2050, while also allowing for opportunity to promote equity and respect universal human rights.

In this report, Sivan Kartha and Paul Baer admit that a zero carbon goal is challenging, but achievable and affordable if "approached in the context of human solidarity with global cooperation delivering investment in green infrastructure in developing countries."

They also argue that efforts to address climate change can also be a major opportunity to promote equity and human rights at a global scale.
