DescriptionProfessor Pawar was invited to join the eminent panel consisting of Professor Lena Dominelli (University of Stirling, UK) and Dr Imtiaz Sooliman (Founder and Executive Director of Gift of the Givers, a leading international disaster relief NGO), to discuss climate change, humanitarian aid and social inclusion.
Professor Pawar introduced the theme by presenting a social development perspective.
“There are moral and ethical imperatives that those who are contributing to climate change have the responsibility to significantly contribute to climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies, programs and provisions throughout the world, particularly to poor countries and vulnerable population groups in all countries,” he said.
“This is not only reasonable, fair and just from the human rights perspective, but also from a ‘neoliberal ideology’, or the principle of user or polluter pays the price.”
