A LACK of diversity in climate change decision-making in Bristol is undermining the city’s pledge to make a “just transition” to net-zero carbon emissions by 2030, researchers warn.
The year-long study released today, which focused on six Bristol-based organisations looking at climate change, found that people of colour made up just 3 per cent of discussions on the issue.
The study — the first of its kind to be conducted on a city scale — also found that women of colour accounted for just 2 per cent of debate time, despite making up 14 per cent of participants in meetings on the city’s strategy for reaching net zero.
Authors of the study, led by academics at the University of Bristol, said they would not be surprised if the findings were replicated elsewhere.
Co-author Dr Alix Dietzel said barriers to engagement could include feelings of mistrust between marginalised and privileged communities.
Researchers also warned that the lack of diversity could undermine Bristol’s One City Climate Strategy, which lists “fairness” as a key principle.
