Reparation and Equality
From Kathryn Hood
This panel event opened the third in the University’s Futures Conversations series and discussed how progress could be made on the back of COP26.
The first Future of Climate Justice conversation took place on Monday 10 October 2022 in the University of Edinburgh’s Playfair Library.
The outcome document of COP26 – the Glasgow Climate Pact – is prominent, contentious and was reluctantly agreed by rich nations. It behoves all of us to ask what has happened. Where are the finances to make life-saving changes happen? Drawing on the language of ‘loss and damage’ this conversation asked what needs to be done and how could we do it.
This panel event opened the third in the University of Edinburgh’s Futures Conversations series and featured Elizabeth Cripps, Tasneem Essop, Arunabha Ghosh, AC Grayling, Vanessa Nakate, Patricia Scotland, chaired by Dr Hermione Cockburn.
