Abstract

In this record I will be endeavouring to outline and understand of the impact that climate change has had on social inequalities in developing nations, especially that of India . I will be doing this as such by drawing upon a scope of experiences from social theory, anthropological and socio-economic aspects, all of which are grounded in a growing body of academic evidence. Through the exploration of this topic I aim to demonstrate that social, anthropological  and behavioural factors are significant in clarifying why we as a society have not, yet, taken significant steps towards correcting resulting  disparity that occurs due to the impact climate change has on society in the terms specifically discussed in this paper, as stated above. The power of social norms and sanctions give us behavioural insights tell us that people are inevitably influenced by what others around them are doing either positively or negatively. This paper in part explores how social norms can encourage the adoption of environmentally conscious behaviour and at what cost does that arrive at.
