The project “ClimAte JuStiCe and INtersectionality: from ADaptation to Transformation (ASCEND)” explores climate justice approaches and dynamics through an intersectional lens. Climate justice generally refers to both a concept, and a movement, which are directed at the different aspects of climate change and its adverse impacts on social, economic, health, and other levels of underprivileged sectors of the society. Hence, ASCEND integrates a climate justice approach with the concepts or lenses of vulnerability, climate resilience and social-ecological transformation. Also, ASCEND aims to unveil intersectional perspectives (gender, minorities, youth and migrants) in climate change adaptation planning; and raise awareness to the intersectional dimensions of climate justice.
