“There are growing calls for climate justice but what do they mean in a country like India haunted by centuries of oppression and injustice? This important volume demonstrates both conceptually and empirically how India's climate crisis is interlocked with multiple socio-political, economic and ecological crises and inequalities. Going beyond the usual international focus, Kashwan and collaborators unpack these issues at national, state-levels and in specific sectoral areas. Through rich historically and empirically grounded analyses, the contributors urge us to reimage alternative climate futures and show how transformative action to tackle climate change can help create a more just and inclusive society.
