People, culture and communities
The most important remaining barriers to effective climate action are social and economic, rooted in values, choices, identity, behaviour, organisation, culture, and politics.
We need to consider the disruptive impacts of decarbonisation the lives and livelihoods of diverse people and communities, while also balancing the consequences of failing to act.
An inclusive, clean energy transition facilitates comprehensive development. When marginalised groups can access affordable clean energy, their wellbeing is bolstered and they can break the cycle of poverty.
We’re investigating how to make energy transitions just and inclusive, for all people and living beings, everywhere.
First Nations people
Increasing clean energy interest in First Nations Countries requires prioritising cultural safety, security and proficiency. If managed sensitively and respectfully, the energy transition offers a chance to bring meaningful outcomes for First Nations Peoples and revitalise their future.
Health and climate change
Building resilient health systems, using transdisciplinary approaches and systems thinking will be critical if we are to withstand the impacts of climate change and other stresses.
