Climate change is a complex topic. Terms such as ‘equity’, ‘historical responsibility’, ‘INDCs’ and ‘fair shares’ are used during climate negotiations and in much of the writing about them. Friends of the Earth International has published a series of factsheets to explain what theses terms mean and why we advocate for climate justice. What is ‘equity’, ‘historical responsibility’ and ‘system change’ ? Can we stay below a 1.5℃ increase in temperature? And what needs to happen to avoid further increases? Read this Equity refresher in relation to climate change.
