This primer is being published as a contribution to the urgent need to raise awareness among the people about climate change, the possible consequences for humanity and the urgent need for action.
This primer takes the standpoint of the world’s poor who are the most vulnerable to the negative effects of climate change and the least able to adapt to the challenges of climate change. The primer takes a partisan stand in pointing to those most responsible for what has been rightly termed as the “great catastrophe of the 21st century” and the measures they must take to make amends for their debt to humanity.
This primer then puts forward the People’s Protocol on Climate Change as a statement of the stand of the people on the various issues surrounding climate change and what action must be taken to mitigate and adapt to climate change.
