Fair climate action

Climate change is a threat to every living creature on the planet, but it is inevitably the poor countries that bear the brunt of its devastating force. Actions taken to address climate change can for their part also have adverse effects when they ignore global sustainable development goals or at worst result in human rights violations. In industrialised countries, workers and communities depending on carbon intensive industries stand to lose in the transition towards more sustainable and climate friendly economies.

Carbon Market Watch advocates for fair and effective climate protection which means robust rules to guarantee high environmental integrity of climate mitigation projects on one hand, and channelling resources towards supporting workers and communities in the low-carbon transition on the other hand.
