Climate Diplomacy in Cities

Climate Diplomacy in Cities

 

There has been a perceptible transformation in regard to global environmental discourse and in how developing countries have been responding to the discourse. Apparently, the dynamics of both are correlated. The reciprocal interaction between the two signifies a remarkable transformation of issues related to environmental conservation into global agenda of sustainable development. The need for the adaptation to the Climate Change to build the climate resilient societies can be the opportunity for the creation of sustainable enterprises that can eliminate the poverty, conserve natural resources. In a way this represents winwin strategy by turning the crisis into opportunity. The cooperation and participation of the members of the local community, many of who are marginal, becomes essential to seize such opportunities. It is important to ensure that the livelihood of the local and marginal communities shouldn’t be adversely impacted while seizing such opportunities.The marginal people of developing countries, who are struggling with socioeconomic challenges in the agro-environmental sector or production as well as service sector, need to be recompensed for costs incurred by them in going green.
