Was ist klima­gerechtig­keit und warum ist sie wichtig?

Die Klimakrise betrifft uns alle, aber nicht gleichermaßen. Durch Hitzewellen, zerstörerisches Wetter, steigenden Meeresspiegel und historische Hungersnöte trifft die Klimakrise die Menschen am härtesten, die am wenigsten für das Problem verantwortlich sind und aufgrund von Unterdrückung und Diskriminierung am wenigsten Mittel haben, um sich vor den Auswirkungen zu schützen. Das ist nicht gerecht.

Die von der Klimakrise betroffenen Bevölkerungsgruppen brauchen Geld und Unterstützung. Zum Beispiel für den Wiederaufbau von Häusern und Krankenhäusern oder um Menschen zu helfen, die nach einem Wirbelsturm ihre Lebensgrundlage verloren haben. Ein internationaler Fonds zur Bewältigung der Verluste und Schäden, die durch den Klimawandel verursacht sind, ist ein erster Schritt in Richtung Klimagerechtigkeit.



Mi az éghajlati igazságosság és miért fontos?

A klímaválság mindannyiunkat érint, de nem egyenlően. Kánikulák, pusztító időjárás, tengerszint-emelkedés és történelmi éhínség által. A klímaválság azokat érinti a legjobban, akik a legkevésbé felelősek a problémáért és legkevésbé vannak ellátva, az elnyomás és diszkrimináció miatt, ahhoz, hogy megvédjék magukat a behatásoktól. Ez az éghajlati igazságtalanság.

A klímaválsággal sújtott frontvonalban lévő közösségeknek pénzre és támogatásra van szükségük. Például otthonok és kórházak újraépítésére vagy olyan emberek kompenzálására, akik elvesztették megélhetésüket egy ciklon után. Az első lépés a klíma egyenlőség felé egy elkülönített, nemzetközi alap lenne a frontvonalban lévő közösségek számára, hogy megbirkózzanak az éghajlatváltozás legrosszabb behatásai miatt keletkezett veszteségekkel és károkkal.



What is climate justice and why does it matter?

The climate crisis is affecting all of us, but not equally. Through heatwaves, destructive weather, rising seas, and historic famines. The climate crisis is hitting hardest the people who are least responsible for the problem, and least resourced to protect themselves from the impacts due to oppression and discrimination. This is climate injustice.

Frontline communities hit by the climate crisis need money and support. For instance to rebuild homes and hospitals or to compensate people for losing their livelihoods after a cyclone. A dedicated, international fund for frontline communities to cope with the loss and damage due to the worst impacts of climate change is a first step towards climate justice.
