Climate change and poverty

This chapter reiterates the earlier view that the socially careless and ecologically destructive use of land is intimately connected to the deprivations experienced by millions of the least advantaged, particularly regarding housing and transport, but also in terms of flooding and waste facilities. Yet by neglecting the importance of land to questions of social and ecological justice we have deprived ourselves of the means to address the biggest problem we face in the twenty-first century. Social policy reforms, research and debates have long concerned themselves with housing and sanitation and have more recently acknowledged the importance of transport, but the tools needed to integrate those issues in the correct ecosocial context have been lacking. This is a neglect which we need urgently to repair.
