In most ACP countries, the negative consequences of inequality are linked to factors contributing to climate change vulnerability. Social and economic inequalities drive vulnerability among particular groups, some of which have restricted access to the resources required for building adaptive capacity and responding to climate change. Understanding the relationship between inequality and climate change risk is key to informing National Determined Contributions and achieving the SDGs. Participants will discuss the following questions.
- How does inequality shape vulnerability among different socioeconomic groups?
- How is the vulnerability-inequality nexus related to the current socioeconomic paradigm?
- How would limiting global temperature rise to 1.5°C affect this nexus?
