Powering Change: A new approach to a just energy transition

Climate change is not only the greatest environmental emergency of our time, but also an unprecedented human rights crisis. It threatens a wide range of human rights, including the rights to water, food, health, and life itself. The climate crisis disproportionately affects people who are already subjected to multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination and marginalization that arise from structural inequities and policies that unfairly distribute resources, power, and privilege. However, we must not just let the climate crisis or proposed climate solutions deepen these injustices. This briefing summarizes Amnesty International’s current work on Powering Change and outlines our ground-breaking research reports for early 2023.
