This release is a compilation of articles written and published by fourteen freelance writers from the three South Indian states of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala for the campaign on climate justice during the programme year 2013-14.

It is hoped that the efforts of these fourteen freelance writers, when read in the Indian languages media and by a global readership on the web, will further escalate the awareness among the readers, their communities and policy makers who will inspire local, national and international identification with what is at stake. On the national platform, it is hoped that these articles strengthen and lend teeth to environmental movements underway in the country and enhance awareness on the implications of climate change in India and validate the reports by commissions and committees. Available languages: English, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam
