Abstract Agriculture, among the several sectors affected, is a crucial sector in terms of both cause for and consequence of climate change. Small-holder and peasant farmers who are only responsible for a minor contribution to climate change are facing the brunt of its multiplying impacts. Such inequality in terms of contributions and impacts has led to the need and movement for climate justice. With an increasing concern on the equitable sharing of burdens and benefits of climate change, climate justice movements are at the center of global agendas and negotiations. Ensuring climate justice is a must to safeguard the rights of the vulnerable farmers and communities and can be achieved through conscientious actions of developed countries.
