Abstract

The existential threat posed by anthropogenic climate change manifests differently in different global regions, demanding a complex, varied and reflexive approach from the global community. Adopting a focus on the Southeast Asia region, this article identifies intrastate social inequalities, alongside interstate geographic and social differences, as two key factors necessitating a just climate transition. In analysing the severity of climate hazards and their disproportionate impact on the most vulnerable groups, this article contends that the Southeast Asia region requires a climate response that integrates principles of justice and intergenerational resilience to truly address the intertemporal nature of climate change threats.
