The Global Platform for the Right to the City (GPR2C) publishes the Thematic Paper:
Right to the City: a roadmap for Climate Justice
The relevance of the Right to the City to face Climate Change, Global Warming and Environmental Justice
This thematic paper is the result of a collective learning process on the Right to the City, written by our consultant Álvaro Puertas Robina, former Habitat International Coalition Secretary-General, with the support of a reference group formed by different GPR2C’s members and allies. The paper sheds light on the potential of the Right to the City as “one of the reference frameworks to guide equitable Climate Action and to jointly create practical agendas to mitigate Climate Change, adapt to its impacts, and guarantee the restitution of rights lost in the past while preserving those rights for future generations”.
This paper proves that the Right to the City framework is already providing substantial alternatives to work for Climate Justice worldwide!
