Cambiamento climatico e sviluppo umano

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Climate change and human development

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The doctrine of the Catholic Church looks at climate change as a threat to integral human development that has to be addressed through a combination of global governance and changes in moral attitudes towards the Creation as well as life styles. While there is, at present, a general consensus of science, politics, business communities and people on the need for strong climate change policies, the collective actions in place can be insufficient to control climate change and its impacts. A key issue is still the relationship between rich as well as emerging countries, the main contributors to emissions, and the poor countries, which are bound to suffer the most from climate change in terms of human and economic costs.
