IPCC report: what does it say about debt and climate finance?
Climate justice requires debt justice. Communities and activists have been saying this for years. Decision-makers in the global North have refused to listen.
Now, the latest report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change – over 3,000 pages, authored by 270 leading climate scientists appointed by 67 countries, referencing over 34,000 reports – has recognised that addressing unsustainable debt is central to responding to the climate crisis.
