Morrissey, John. (2019). Towards a human security vision of global climate action. Geoforum. doi: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.geoforum.2019.08.010
This commentary piece considers how smart climate action and effective climate resilience can be productively advanced via a securitization discourse that recalls the earlier emphases of the UN’s ‘human security’ concept from the mid-1990s. Drawing upon examples of successful climate action initiatives in the Global South, the paper argues for a discourse of integrated development that is holistically conceived, reflective of locally-attuned environmental knowledge, and underpinned by a human security vision involving overlapping UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
