Stacking Up the Odds – Reflections on Climate Action


2017 | 182 pages

Criticisms ranged from the inadequacy of the goals outlined in the Agreement, which analysts say do not measure up to the gravity and urgency of the problem as evidenced by science; while others point to the democratic deficit in the process of agreeing to the global goals as well as with countries coming up with their ‘intended nationally determined contributions’ (INDCs) to global climate action.

To what extent do these important conversations include peoples on the ground, those already living the realities of the climate crisis and are struggling to keep their heads above the water? This book offers the perspective of peoples from the ground as governments gear towards shaping and implementing their ‘intended nationally determined contributions’ (INDCs).
