Description of Program: Global environmental policy and justice approaches policy-based solutions of the global climate crisis in a way that reduces vulnerability and
hazards that disproportionately affect low-income communities and populations. My

sustainable agriculture in order to feed the world as populations rise. In order to properly
address these issues, the climate crisis must be assessed not only politically, but also from a socioeconomic perspective.
