2020/07 – Institute of Development Studies (IDS), Brighton; IDS Working Paper; Author(s): Newell, Peter; Srivastava, Shilpi; Naess, Lars Otto; Torres Contreras, Gerado A.; Price, Roz

Climate justice is understood in a multitude of ways and reflects the fact that the causes and effects of climate change, as well as efforts to tackle it, raise ethical, equity and rights issues. The language of climate justice is increasingly omnipresent in the discourse of academia, civil society, social movements, some governments, cities and even some businesses. But the mechanisms for delivering it are weak and under-developed. This paper shows that definitions of what is covered by climate justice, at what scales, how it can be measured, and which are the best means to deliver it are all heavily contested.

2020/06 – Transnational Institute (TNI); book; Author(s): Oscar Reyes

This new handbook is an indispensable guide to climate activists and policy-makers alike towards a complete overhaul of the financial system to stop climate chaos. Central to its message is that fossil fuel lending can be redirected towards green energy and that public finance and ownership can bankroll and provide the infrastructure for delivering a Green New Deal. The book presents many progressive proposals to build a just and future-proof financial system that can respond to the climate crisis, assess their potential impact, achievability and any associated drawbacks.

The fair research contracting self-assessment tool, developed by the Swiss Commission for Research Partnerships with Developing Countries and the Council on Health Research for Development supports institutions to engage in fair and equitable negotiation processes for formal contracts despite recognised imbalances in institutional contracting capacities. The self-assessment tool provides a 10 steps approach for assessing an institution's capability to negotiate and conclude fair and equitable research agreements and contracts.

Read more: The Future is Public: Towards Democratic Ownership of Public Services (external link)

2020/05 – Transnational Institute (TNI); book; Author(s): Alexander Panez Pinto et al.

This open access book shows that public services are more important than ever in the face of the climate catastrophe, mounting inequalities, and growing political unrest. Together, civil society organisations, trade unions, and local authorities are crafting new templates for how to expand democratic public ownership to all levels of society and opening up new routes to community-led and climate conscious public service. TNI's research has identified more than 1,400 successful (re)municipalisation cases involving more than 2,400 cities in 58 countries around the world.
