Open for Climate Justice: Open Access Week 2022

The theme of this year’s International Open Access week is ‘Open for Climate Justice’. The theme seeks to encourage connection and collaboration among the climate movement and the international open community. In this spirit we have complied a reading list of the latest research from our Planning journals, Town Planning Review (TPR) and International Development Planning Review (IDPR), that examines climate resilience, environmental justice, energy access, and climate-change research, and is available to read Open Access.
