Urban Grassroots Engagement in Global Climate Debates

In cities, people living in slums, ghettos, informal settlements, townships, or camps are among the most vulnerable to climate change and more likely to experience loss of life, livelihoods, home, and territory. However, their ability to reduce vulnerabilities and adapt to a changing climate is limited compared to better-off groups. Further more, these vulnerable groups lack representation in international decision-making processes that affect them locally, including those regarding the global governance of climate change. This study provides a comprehensive overview of issues relating to the participation of marginalized urban communities in international climate policy decision-making and implementation.
