Fair transitions start local
Named a ‘top innovator’ globally for action on climate justice by the World Economic Forum, the Climate Justice Observatory online resource will empower impacted communities to contribute to local solutions.
The Climate Justice Observatory
Launching late 2022, the Climate Justice Observatory will bring together human rights methodologies of observatories: the provision of reliable information, equity data, climate modelling, long-form journalism and multidisciplinary expert analysis.
The online resource will allow citizens to monitor issues, map local problems and crowd-source solutions, while providing campaign resources.
Based in Queensland, the Climate Justice Observatory will also be able to monitor and track the development of laws, policies and justice interventions in this region, adding value to existing global resources. The Climate Justice Observatory has been named a ‘top innovator’ contributing to climate justice globally by the World Economic Forum.
