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!


How does the Right to the City contribute to Climate Justice?

1. Putting the Planet and its People at the centre.


2. Collective and territorial approach to Human Rights.

3. Focus on communities in situation of vulnerability.

Initiatives that are already working worldwide!

Explore some of the most relevant good practices that the GPR2C’s members and allies support worldwide, which prove that there are already existing solutions and alternatives to the neoliberal unsustainable economic and social model.
