Urban Informality and Inequality: a global call for climate justice

This event will take place online and in-person in Glasgow, UK.
Urban Informality and Inequality: a global call for climate justice

The event, organized by the Commonwealth Local Government Forum (CLGF), in partnership with Cities Alliance and UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), will bring together international speakers and audience members from local and city governments; central governments; research communities; and civil society to discuss climate justice and the importance of taking account of the cumulative risks created by conditions of urban informality, inequality and climate vulnerability in developing effective responses to climate change.

Speakers will identify priorities for action and the role that researchers, civil society actors, city governments and policy makers can play in strengthening local action for sustainable climate justice.


The event will be held simultaneously in person and online, with an interactive panel discussion. It will offer an opportunity to help shape critical policy and research priorities for addressing climate change equitably in cities – where informality and inequality are the reality. The event will help shape priorities for research and local action to ensure better chances of achieving urban climate justice.
