The age of the Anthropocene has heralded inequity concerns both within and between nations. What is the tradeoff between development and high emissions? Who is responsible for the environmental disasters in impoverished countries caused by climate change? Should developing nations be expected to leap frog traditional growth to be green economies and who should help them? For many experts, the way out of this gridlock involves proposing new models of climate justice.

As momentum builds towards an international climate change agreement at the UN COP 21 conference in Paris, New Zealand and French experts discuss humanity’s capacity to adapt, become resilient and address the greatest challenge posed to human existence.
