Environmental justice: inequality and gender

Publication date:
December 2010

Inequality pervades the world, in the allocation of finite resources, the impacts of environmental problems, and in employment and decision-making within environmental sciences. This issue discusses the link between environmental justice and inequality, in particular considering the future of shared resources, the impacts of environmental research on local communities, access to information and the positive impact of the convergence of societal differences on climate change. The gender inequalities in decision-making, employment and in the IES itself are investigated.
