What Next Volume III: Climate, Development and EquityClimate change already affects all of us, but those most vulnerable to its impacts have done the least to cause the problem. Unless radical cuts in emissions take place soon, the world is set for dangerous climate change, with all of humanity at peril.
This 360-page new What Next Volume includes more than 20 articles by some of the world's most far-sighted commentators, researchers and activists.
It presents voices from across the North and South, addressing the combined challenges of climate, development and equity. It highlights the urgency of taking action, but also shows why any attempt to tackle climate change must be grounded in equity. How will humanity fairly divide the rapidly diminishing global carbon budget, while allowing billions of people in the global South (and North) the means for economic, social and environmental well-being? How can United Nations negotiations move forward, and what are real and false solutions?
The publication covers the scientific and equity context of climate change, the UN negotiations, real and false solutions and discussions on movement towards change and the role of civil society.
The publication is free of charge and intended to stimulate far-reaching debate, discussion and action! Please help spread and provide your thoughts and comments!

These contributions from some of the world’s most far-sighted commentators should be required reading for heads of state, policymakers, journalists, activists and the concerned public. Together they make the loudest call for political and individual action and give governments the legitimacy to act.
